The common mockingbird is a superb songbird and mimic. Its own song has a pleasant lilting sound and is, at times, both varied and repetitive. The mockingbird also is helpful to humans because it usually feeds on insects and weed seeds. In the summer and fall, it eats ripe berries. Sharon Thompson snapped this photo of a mockingbird perched atop the light pole in front of her home in Wesley Chapel.
