I found this bird at the Humber Arboretum in Toronto.

Kindly let me know if you can tell me what bird this is.

Our readers may know what this bird is, so I hope they write in and let us know!

Definitely a mocking bird. They like to eat berries in trees. Cool!

Pretty sure this bird is a Mockingbird

Shaan, this bird looks like a Northern Mockingbird by it's curved bill and white patch on it's wing feathers.

Mockingbirds are known for their ability to mimic sounds. Some can mimic and incorporate up to 100 different bird sounds in their song and some have been heard to mimic dogs barking and musical instruments.

Apparently they have quite the springtime courtship dance and have a life span up to 20 years.

Now year-round residents in Southern Ontario they like to eat rose hips, suet, raisins and fruit.
