Just Birds
A Selection of Sounds

Come with me along a path of aural delights!

In spring, lingering winter visitors, migrants, summer and permanent residents add to nature's symphony. Spirited territorial or mating disputes happen when six or seven chickadees meet, when there are three sapsuckers instead of just a pair and when one robin's claim rivals another's.

In the last robin's song, the robin hesitates at times to watch and listen. Not far away, but hidden by the trees, a crow tries to move a merlin, and succeeds. The resident jays have two selections; their second selection holds a rarely heard song. Then the male catbird sings and the female mews. As their duet ends, a mourning dove takes flight.

Other summer residents sing joyously. They are home again. For now, all is well.
