Description

Mimids (mockingbirds, thrashers and catbirds) are the master singers of the bird world. In Arizona, we are fortunate to have almost all of the North American species, from the common curve-billed thrasher and northern mockingbird to the unusual blue mockingbird. Explore the amazing singing behavior of these birds and learn about the physiology that makes it possible. Discover the varied ecology of this diverse group, and learn the keys to identifying the sometimes similar species.
