Yeah, here ya go:
Quote
The Northern Mockingbird is a loud and persistent singer. It sings all through the day, and often into the night. Most nocturnal singers are unmated males, which sing more than mated males during the day too. Nighttime singing is more common during the full moon. In well-lit areas around people, even mated males may sing at night.
(source: All About Birds)

There's a lot of results on google for "mockingbird singing at night" and other variations. Most are people trying to figure out how to get sleep at night when a mockingbird sets up his eharmony.com profile of nightly singing! Cheesy

Thanks for the info.  Almost makes me wish I had mockingbirds. Cheesy

I've lived places where they have sang all day, and then I lived in a place that had one that was a night bird! Boy, they are phenomenal birds, but having them do their insane impressions all night is enough to drive anyone mad. (You should watch Failure to Launch, the roommate in there had this problem, and also found out how illegal it is to kill them LoL It was amusing) We have an owl a block up that whoo whooos for me at night, I love it.

I'm a big fan of the owls that live around here. When I lived on campus, my dorm was right off on a canyon and we'd have owls perched in the eucalyptus trees, staring at us while we were studying for finals. I'm not sure how I feel about the coyotes, raccoons, and occasional bobcats (!!) that crawl out of the canyons, though. They are gorgeous to look at while I'm inside, but being spooked by one the snuck up on me is quite another story.

hahaha...I immediately thought of Failure to Launch when the talk turned to Mockingbirds.  Zooey Deschanel's character is a riot in that movie!   Cheesy

I guess that would explain the sugar glider in the lady's jacket at the show.  I didn't know they were marsupials.  They are definitely cute, though, and they look like they would be good pets.

I guess I'll stick with my red-winged blackbirds, instead of mockingbirds.  At least the blackbirds are predictable.

I've seen plenty of coyotes, deer and elk here, but I've never seen a bobcat.  I think I'm glad for that.

Thanks - so does that make them indigenous to Australia only? Our flying squirrels are quite big here in the USA, but they can make a mess in attics and garages.

It's the red squirrels that are obnoxious! They throw stuff at you and are very destructive.

Most animals can be aggressive if cornered or threatened. It's how they protect themselves from the big bad humans who are stealing their habitats and poisoning them with the endless garbage and waste - ok - I'm off my soap box

I have a healthy respect for all of Nature and enjoy watching the wildlife which I will feed appropriately as a contribution to Nature's cause. I also put out hair and feathers for the birds to make their nests. My mom used to hang out the horses' hair after combing. Birds love down and all sorts of soft things for their nests. PA winters can be brutal they need all the help they can get.

Whenever I cut my hair in the spring, I always put the hair out for the birds.  The swallows like to use it for their mud nests.  I guess it makes them stronger.

holy smokes, I missed like 5 pages.

We don't have as many squirrels in tennessee as we did in mi. we have brown ones up in michigan and down hear they are more gray. I have 1 cute and one sad squirrel story:

cute- when I was in Kindergarten, I was riding home from school on the school bus and BAM the bus stops and my face smashed into the bus seat. I randomly jabbered with my bus driver so I said "hey, what was that!?" and she told me that a little squirrel ran out in front of us. you didn't want me to hit it did you?! and I said well no. My face getting smashed was worth it, compassion is learned early Smiley

sad- I started dating this guy and he came to pick me up and brought a baby squirrel that was in his yard that had gotten away from its mother. I called my local vet and he couldn't help me because squirrels aren't domestic. So I cared for this baby squirrel until It passed away. I was so upset because I just wanted to get him well enough to go back out, but I think he was just too young. I cried and cried when he died. It was pitiful. I was so way more attached to the squirrel than I ever was that jerk, I called to tell him the squirrel died and I was crying and he was like "why are you crying, It's just a squirrel."

that was the end of that relationship.

When I was little, I used to love taking my hair outside for the birds to make nests with, I guess I thought I was the only one who did that

The only bad thing about sugar gliders as pets is that they sell wooden cages and the smell seeps into the wood and it's bad.  Also, they have bifid penises (2 of them) and high hormone levels (which is why the boys have bald spots) so once they hit puberty they are less fun and cute and more GROSS.
