As night fades to a pre-dawn glow, birds begin their morning song. First one tune, then another, then another: twills and trills and chirps and cheers in repeating patterns as uniquely different as these feathered singers who belt out this morning exuberance. Sleep is over; I try to follow all the different songs joining the chorus as the sky grows lighter. Most times of year, crows begin the morning serenade (as if a cawing crow could ‘serenade’) but spring brings many travelers through our treetops.  Sweet new sounds have migrated north before I can even think to identify them. Windows are open to better hear this cheerful noise while it lasts. As the sun rises, songs taper off as winged creatures go about the day’s business. Time for us all to be up and at ‘em.~K
