Both male and female Mockingbirds sing in fall, marking their feeding territories. Todd and I have been hearing one singing quite loudly outside the Carriage House recently. Mockingbirds are tremendous mimics, both of other bird songs and calls, and other sounds that they've heard.
Check out this link, for a great recording of a Northern Mockingbird song cycle, recorded by Lang Elliot. Can you hear the Carolina Wren, Tufted Titmouse, and the Eastern Towhee?
This was another post about their songs.
