Chalk-browed Mockingbird Mimus saturninus


The Chalk-browed Mockingbird is common in open habitats in eastern South America, at least as long as a few trees are present. It is an adaptable species, often found in parks and gardens, and in parts of South America its range is expanding as forested areas are cleared. Like other mockingbirds, it has a loud, varied song, and most often forages on the ground.
