Genus Melanotis

Blue Mockingbird - The Blue Mockingbird is uniformly blue on its back, tail, wings, head and underbelly. This color is a result of feather structure rather than pigment, and therefore can look gray in the shade. It has a black "mask" surrounding its reddish-brown eyes. It has a rather long, slightly graduated tail, and dark blue streaks over its breast. Its bill is long, thin and slightly curved, and its legs and feet are black.


Blue & White Mockingbird - It is about 25 cm long. It has blue-grey upperparts, white underparts, red eyes and a black mask. The song is high-pitched and rattling.
