Although often seen surveying its surroundings from a perch, the Patagonian mockingbird normally forages from the ground (2) (3). It is predominately insectivorous, but outside of the breeding season, will also eat fruits and berries (2)
In the north of its range, the Patagonian mockingbird is resident year round, but southerly populations migrate north over winter (2) (3). Breeding takes place from October through to January, but generally occurs earlier in the south. Breeding pairs are monogamous with each clutch comprising three to six eggs laid in a small twiggy nest in low vegetation (2).
