In my urban neighborhood, the
Northern Mockingbird songs include 
segments easily identified as car
alarm sounds, cell phone rings, and
the beep-beep-beep that accompanies
trucks as they reverse.  These sounds
are heard throughout the day (and
night, unfortunately), while musical
tunes are intermittant and less
likely to be repeated.

Sic transit gloria mundi.
