"The early bird catcheth the worm."
John Ray - 17th century
At the crack of dawn, at about 3:45 AM the early bird also has the first song of the day, the cheerily cheerily chirp reminding me that...
"This is the day that the LORD has made.
Let us rejoice and be glad in it."
The Western Meadowlark waiting for his turn ...
and when he sings it is
the sweetest flute-like warbled song.
The Magpie or 'robber' can be annoying!
This lonely, male quail was nattering at the stone dove for several days.
A little miffed?
