Of Love,Darwin and Mockingbirds

drawing by marguerita

When the survey voyage of HMS Beagle visited the Galápagos Islands in September to October 1835, the naturalist Charles Darwin noticed that the mockingbirds Mimus thencadiffered from island to island, and were closely allied in appearance to mockingbirds on the South American mainland. Nearly a year later when writing up his notes on the return voyage he speculated that this, together with what he had been told about Galápagos tortoises, could undermine the doctrine of stability of species. This was his first recorded expression of his doubts about species being immutable, which led to him being convinced about thetransmutation of species and hence evolution. It was only after the ship returned to England that he found out about the better known Darwin's Finches.

In 2009 it was reported that Doug Levey, a biologist at the University of Florida, had discovered that mockingbirds could pick out a threatening person from a crowd. Levey had one person stand near a mockingbird nest and touch it, while other people avoided the nest. Later on, the mockingbirds recognized the intruder and attacked him, while ignoring the other

" Listen to the Mockingbird" was once a popular song

inthe United States.The sc ientific name of this

species translates as " many-tongued mimic ."

Mockingbirds have been known to mimic the songs

of thirty-nine other bird species, imitate fifty call

notes, the barking of a dog, pianos, and squeaky

gates.Mockingbirds possess their own song and

unmated males will sing at night during spring.

They are very aggressive defenders of their territory,

chasing not only other birds,but also cats, dogs and

humans .excerpt from 50 Common Birds of The

My callaloo

Spelled half a dozen different ways, this colorful word turns up in Jamaican records as early as 1696. This leafy, spinach-like vegetable is typically prepared as one would prepare turnip or collard greens. This variety of callaloo Amaranthus viridis, better known as Chinese spinach or Indian kale, should not be confused with the callaloo found in the eastern Caribbean, which refers to the leaves of the dasheen plant
