Year Round Residents 2 Brown Thrasher: Look under brush for these birds as they toss leaves around searching for insects. Northern Mockingbird: Very common. Sings almost constantly and often imitates other birds. Boat-tailed Grackle: Often thought of as just a black nuisance bird, but catch one in the right light and they are transformed. European Starling: One of the most common birds in North America. They sometimes gather in very large flocks, especially when hawks are around. The yellow bill indicates breeding plumage. Eastern Bluebird: The Landings is a great home for this species due to the outstanding work of the Skidaway Audubon Bluebird Project, described in the Skidaway Audubon website.
