Sounds of Spring

You will want to turn your sound up, as this was made just so you could hear the din of this mixed flock of red winged black birds, starlings, grackles, and whatever that little yellow thing in about the middle finch maybe....

I was out with Nick and these guys were tuning up in the tree right by the house. Loud enough to hurt your ears almost.

Meanwhile we are wishing that winter would go into remission. The normal daily temp for this time of year is 46. Instead we are getting up to low single digits and not warming up much all day.

Just guessing but they were right by the house because that was where the food is... I probably missed a few calls for frequency deprevation (hearing loss) but interesting. You can have the frozen wind whistles or the birds and the birds promise Spring. Oops, it already is Spring, isn't it?

Earl, I love having the birds...listen whenever I can. The weather is a whole nother story. Been in the single digits nights with all day awful wind chills. I want to go out and play...until I get out there. lol

That's a sweet sound. I hear o-karee for the first time last week.
I think I heard Sandhill cranes yesterday!
