The bird which sing pleasantly..

The common mockingbird (Mimus polyglottos) is a superb songbird and mimic. Its own song has a pleasant lilting sound.The mockingbird sings all night long, especially under bright springtime moonlight.Mockingbirds are usually about ten inches in length, with a fifteen-inch wingspan, grayish upper portions, white undersides, and white patches on the tail and wings. The female has slightly less whiteness in its feathers than the male.Masterful mimicry of various other bird songs and calls is included in its long, complex vocal arrangements. The mockingbird will continue to accumulate new sounds throughout its lifetime.If you are fortunate enough to hear a mockingbird singing into the night, you are most likely in the presence of an unmated male, which are more likely to be heard during a full moon.Their song can be heard throughout most of the year, from February to August and then again from September to early November
