Pardon me, I'm celebrating! http://ebird.org/ebird/view/
I saw this bird twice today. The second time I was lucky enough to have a camera in my hand. At first I thought it might have been a catbird, but the white bands under the wings vetoed that. Then I thought some kind of flycatcher, due to tail-flipping. All traits observed match a Northern Mockingbird. It may have been young, a little fuzzy around head.
