Longtailed Mockingbird - Mimus Longicaudatus

I accquire this bird on 10/10/09.  I want the male and the shop tried to give me what I want but no guarantee as both male and female are looked alike.  So far the bird is calm but little nervous when I stand infront of the cage. He jumps around the cage whenever I come near but not in a panic/blindly jumping to cause any harm to himself.  He eat few crickets, and small mealworms as far as I see.  Hopefully when he gets use to the cage and start eating pellets, he will sing which is the main objective why I accquire this longtailed mockingbird.  My shama can learn new song from this bird.
