                                     [Normavid of a chippering chorus --crank up volume]

Sudden colonies in 
Low branches-- 
Bushtits, finches-- 
Full of discussion, 
Oration, midwinter 
Debate 'til late 
Afternoon; each 
Chirp opening new 
Warbles ahead 
Of a rising moon.

  2. That is truly one of the loveliest sounds to hear. Our winter birds are not as melodious. Crows and Cardinals really can't sing.

  3. I love the birds all winter, and especially the little chickadees who make their cheeky presence known all summer, too.

  4. Is it just me, or does the sound of the birds chirping brings instant joy to the one who hears it?

  7. They seem to be a melodious congress in cheery debate.
    Now there's a pattern to be copied.

  8. Perhaps a meeting of the local bird council? I had no sound come through but can imagine how wonderful it all sounded. Loved the poem.
