Mockingbird Help Needed
I would like more information on the mockingbird. I have had them for two years now and they have become very tame, however, I think I lost my female to a sparrow hawk, but the male stays with me and almost eats out of my hand and comes when I call him (Daddy). What I would like to know is that the male appears to be courting again, and will he remain in his territory or will he go to the female territory. I don't want to lose him as he is so endearing. Any information would be appreciated.

Put out the right foods that attract mockingbirds. Mockingbirds are attracted to suet feeders with plenty of suet. Mockingbirds are also attracted to raisins, fruits or seeds. They especially like sunflower seeds. Mockingbirds also enjoy small pieces of bread.
Mockingbirds are also attracted to grapes, raspberries, figs and blackberries. Good luck!
