[CT Birds] Northern mockingbirds, hard to believe but a 'year' bird

Urban:  That's also been my sense, given the number I see around the Queens College campus, NYC (where they're chattering up a storm), and given that around Lake Whitney, Hamden, I tend to see them around the suburban lawns, not the RWA property.  A small sample size, granted.

I am not a very active birder so I 'get' my "year" northern mockingbird doing my local June bird count or doing my local Christmas Bird Count. I have not seen a mocker this year and was somewhat amazed to find two mockers today in my non birding travels to New Britain, CT. The first mocker I noted was in a New Britain City Park just to the north of the Hospital of Central Connecticut in New Britain. Driving my non Interstate highway route back home from New Britain I was surprised to see another mocker while waiting at a light on a state highway near the former Bristol Mall in Bristol, CT. Perhaps CT mockers are more urban birds?
