  • Very early this morning, even before the sun was up, every bird in North America surrounded our home to sing at top volume.

    I'm not sure why the trees around our home were the chosen venue, but, since I couldn't go back to sleep, I figured I might as well share it with all of you. At once beautiful & frustrating.

    I hope they stopped singing long enough to get the worm.
