The storms have passed for the day creating a beautiful sunrise. Every morning we are greeted by a variety of birdsongs. Mourning doves, robins, song sparrows, even a Baltimore Oriole has chimed in. Of course our roosters also have to have their say but we'll leave that for another day.
Remember that just because a bird may be dressed in drab colors doesn't necessarily mean that its tongue has not been tipped with gold. I keep my Peterson's guide near the back door to identify the type of bird by sight. I then later look up the bird online to connect the song to the feathered beastie. For example, there is a song sparrow who has a nest near the kitchen garden. want to hear him? http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Song_Sparrow/id/ac
