Northern Mockingbird

heard it from the car as I drove east from I-80, just a few hundred yards from the freeway - thought it was a Sage Thrasher at first, but quickly realized what it was - long-tailed gray bird perched on sage - faint wing stripes and tail stripes


until it flew up (maybe to catch bugs?), then white wing patch and stripes on sides of tail were visible
