sort of like that blue jay that sounds remarkably like a red shouldered hawk.

Subject: [va-richmond-general] Mockingbird Question

There is a Red Tailed Hawk in my neighborhood consantly flying around with it's 
unique call.  Yesterday morning I heard the call and traced it to a tall pine 
tree in my yard only to find that a Mockingbird was making the call.  It did 
not have the volume of the hawk but the call was the same.  Other birds were 
flying around to check it out too.
Does anyone know if this is typical of a Mockingbird?
