The sun is down, and last light fades away into gentle evening clouds. The cricket symphony is tuning up. For a few minutes the crickets have the stage to themselves, then the golden-throated wood thrush sings out, its beautiful melody echoing across rolling hills. It’s a blissful evening concert… for a minute. A yellow-billed cuckoo is nearby, its call a croaking, discordant song, and the wood thrush goes silent, respectfully giving the stage to its neighbor. And now, at the edge of dark, a Chuck-will’s-widow joins in, hidden somewhere close by, loud and persistent, drowning out even the crickets. ~K
