The Northern mockingbird Arkansas state bird. There are lots of them around my place. They can be confusing to Chancy at times.
They can whistle and sound just like me when I whistle for Chancy to come in. Sometimes when he is outside they whistle and Chancy will look to see if I am out there. They have not learned to say…let’s go get a big cookie though. lol I can go out the door and one will whistle at me. They mimic a lot of whistles and sounds I make interacting with them. They respond to me until I go inside. I have wondered how long they would keep it up but I tire before they do so I will never know.
