They are known as the “many-tongued mimic,” because they learn and repeat the songs of other songbirds. One bird can learn 200 songs during its lifespan and they mimic these borrowed songs with great intention. According to the National Wildlife Federation, it seems that the males organize two separate playlists, one for Spring and one for Fall. They have also been known to mimic other noises like frogs, dogs barking, and musical instruments.
