I woke this morning to hear the Bluebirds singing and also to hear the
call/song of a bird that I am totally unable to indentify.
I heard this song last year starting about this time ; it is a song I'd
never heard before. I have listened to all of the Peterson tapes and
can find nothing that resembles what I am hearing. I've tried to 'see'
this bird but thus far I've been totally unsuccessful. At this time of
year when I should be able to find it as there are no leaves the bird is
too far away for me to get a fix on it's location. In the summer when it
is closer to the yard the leave obstruct my view.
Also witnessed a Sharpie despatch a Mourning Dove while hanging out the
laundry. Lordy they are quick!
