Nature's Serenade

While sitting on the porch swing at my dad's, we were continually serenaded.  We heard music all around us... nature's music.  The chirps of the sparrows, the beautiful song of the Goldfinches, the "purty, purty, purty" of the Cardinal, and a mother wren who sang from sun up until sun down.  Dad and I talked several times about that little wren, as she was tireless and very impressive.  Such a big voice for such a small bird.  It's almost as if she had sent Mr. Wren to buy AMT Electronics Amplifiers, so that she would be heard singing her beautiful song.

And then, there were these guys... the Grackles.  They were the bullies of the bunch, and their "Caw! Caw! Squawk!" didn't need an amplifier!  The Chippies appreciated it when they'd throw the seed out of the feeder though. ;-)

Grackles are beautiful in their own way. Great shot, Misty.

And those grackles are incredible smart too - they figured out how to lift the door and let it fall to dislodge fish food (aka dog food kibbles) from the dispenser. It was fun to watch!

They may not have the best voice - but they do seem to have great feathers!

I thought I’d let you know that I stepped into the void caused by Springmans decision to close down World Bird Wednesday by setting up Wild Bird Wednesday (!) on my photoblog at Paying Ready Attention – Photo Gallery.
