I had one singing up a storm in Fairfield last week. Sounded far off so I was looking distally and couldn't find it. Went to turn to leave and it was about 6 feet away from me in an Amelanchier bush the whole time singing its repertoire of songs (including a Killdeer). Quite ventriloqual. Black-billed Cuckoos have fooled me like that before too.

I associate Mockingbirds with late-Spring and Summer. While I haven't seen it, I have heard it the last three nights. Westport, near the corner of Post Road and South Maple Avenue.
Anyone else seen/heard them yet? Or has nobody posted about them because everyone is seeing and hearing them?
