With keen discernment- I, your Northern Mockingbird, can recall you as a threat from past encounters. Known as 'many-tongued mimic' I mock songs of birds and frogs. My songs are diverse and long- some twenty-seconds- compiled from the sounds I hear. Honored and tagged as State bird for five U.S. States- you'll find me in books and songs. Sandra M. Haight ~6th Place~ Contest: Pick A Title, Vol 6 - Personification Sponsor: Edward Ibeh Judged: 07/20/2019 *The Mocking Bird is the State bird for Arkansas, Texas, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Florida
