An absolute gem!
Ha! Thanks, Mike. I looked out of the window first thing just as it was starting to snow, and there was a blackbird burbling away. In fact it’s still there…
The blackbird is the finest thing. Just had coffee in a little French owned cafe where a rather brave robin was nicking crumbs from whatever table it fancied!
That’s the best kind of singing!
Sure is! 🙂
This is beautiful. I took some pictures recently of morning doves sitting in the bare trees around us when the temp was below 20f (-7c). I was surprised at how much their presence added to the otherwise dreary day.
Thanks, Dan. We had a -5C dip last night, and I was amazed how many birds were around this morning. I suppose they take advantage of every second to find food…
…no one in particular, but everyone specifically.
Even though a bird sings his song to all – not everyone hears it the same way. It’s that difference a poet voices.
Thank you for your comment, Clarence. I like the idea that a bird does not sing his song to us (and we shall probably never know exactly why he does do it), but that we can all hear if we listen, and for each of us the song is just a little different. An exciting idea perhaps?
Lovely, singing just because…
Ahh. I think that’s the best possible answer. Just because…
Soo beautiful! My personal favourite so far! ❤️😊
Ah… thank you for making my day brighter 🙂
