On May 3 Kathie Rosse took two pictures (attached) at Chinsegut Conservation Center, north of Brooksville, in Hernando County. The somewhat long and heavy bill, strong wing bars, body shape, and long tail all fit a Northern Mockingbird. There is a shadow of gray where the white patch should be on the wing below the bottom wing bar. But we can't explain the long white supercilium and the white arc under the eye. Does anyone have any thoughts about this bird?
