The mockingbird is known as a great “bird imitator” in the wild. It will imitate the mating calls/sounds of other animals to attract or repel other birds or danger in the area. They’re also extremely intelligent, with a fierce instinct to protect their family. They’ve been known to attack humans if they believe they pose a threat.
Mockingbirds sing all night long, “mocking” other birds in an effort to secure their territory. And like most birds, they’re beautiful. That’s the main reason people choose to get bird tattoos done, and it’s the same reason people go birdwatching. Birds are calming to the human spirit.
