    Default Northern Mockingbird in Gibraltar

    Reports of a Northern Mockingbird in Gibraltar - http://awbirder.blogspot.com/2012/02...-in-spain.html - no photos yet available?

    There is one record for Spain - http://www.rarebirdspain.net/arbsf045.htm

    MEGA NORTHERN MOCKINGBIRD in Spain!
    Northern Mockingbird (Mimus polyglottos). North Mole, Gibraltar.
    I suspect the local inhabitants would strenuously deny that Gibraltar is in Spain

    Excellent. This was the last thread to discuss potential ship-assisted mockingbirds:

    Seems a popular route from eastern Caribbean through the Canaries (site of the last Spanish Mockingbird on Gran Canaria) and then on to southern Spain:
