Elaine,Many years ago, I read somewhere that mockingbirds can havea repertoire of as many as 85 songs!  It's fun and quite challengingto figure out what species they are mimicking. Meredith SampsonOld Greenwich

Does anyone know the  "record" number of different calls a Mockingbird can do at one time...Yesterday, I listened as a Mockingbird called out 17 different calls/sounds without repeating....after that I couldn't keep track and it was still going on and on....It never ceases to amaze me!
