Northern Mockingbirds are very easy to ID in flight.
Fairly easy when perched.
Only the Catbird can match them in size and basic color but they don't have any white markings.
MB's like Robins are winter fruit/berry eaters so I guess only the Crab Apples are left.

We have two pair here and they battle constantly.

One does a Killer Red Tailed Hawk cry!
We have a pair nesting near us and many times can't tell who's doing the call.
Another seems to like aggravating the Cardinals.. it will sit for hours imitating them.

Web Shot.
