Eveningsong

It’s one thing to watch the sun set, and it’s another to listen to conversations of whole communities of animals while daylight fades to dark. Frogs are having a good year, serenading from woodland rain puddles half a mile away. Birds grow silent, one after another, as they settle into night’s roost, but cardinals chirp low in nearby underbrush until the first heavenly planet brightens in a darkening sky. From the ridge across a deep dark ravine a coyote - then two coyotes – find each other with their yippy yodels, then go silent. Close by there is a wherp sound, then a whippoorwill calls, once, twice, then more soft wherp sounds, really nearby, and then silence… unusual for a bird that has been known to call far into the night. By now a soft, hazy moon is high overhead and the air is cooling. Frog sound fades away, and so do I. ~K
