      Despite the well-documented presence of the Anchorage Northern Mockingbird in the late 1990's, given the almost annual reports of Northern Mockingbird observations from Upper Cook Inlet that turn out to be Northern Shrike, the Anchorage eBird reviewer has requested documentation from the observer to support the Northern Mockingbird report.

      In the interim, the Northern Mockingbird observation reported in the eBird Alert on March 24th is classed as "Unconfirmed." If confirmed, the observer has the option of posting a report on the akbirding website.

      I think what Toby, along with myself are interested in----- is this bird still around? The unbelievable comments were made by reporter listed. The cemetery bird made it through a few winters.

      Not unbelievable. There was a Mockingbird in downtown Anchorage for several years back in the 90's. He was very lonely -- in spite of all the birders who came to see him.
