Urgent Mockingbird: not moving, blank stare

There's a mockingbird in our backyard that barely moves. It'll sit in one place for quite a long time staring blankly into the distance. If we approach it, it snaps out of it when we get close and scampers off. But then it'll resume just sitting there. I suspect that it's sick but don't know if it's some sort of bacterial infection or if it ate something poisonous or what.

Any insight would be appreciated as to how to diagnose/treat. We're in the Las Vegas area. Don't have a ton of money to pay a vet.

Thanks in advance!

You could try contacting a local wildlife rehabilitator. They do not charge you anything, and are trained in caring for wildlife.
