Misty Morning Bird Song
Back in for breakfast. Many species are awakening. Loudest and most persistent is the Scarlet Tanager -- singing interspersed with his diagnostic "chip-burr" call. Also Eastern Phoebe, Wood Thrush, and American Robin nearby, with American Goldfinch, Eastern Towhee, and Brown Thrasher singing from the edges over there. Overhead, the Chimney Swifts have taken wing from the chimney looking for any insects that may be flying in the 58 degree air above the woods. Now I'm off for a proper Birdathon bird hike.
