Day 12 Birdsong

flowers and house finch

Listen to the song it sings

flitting from branch to branch;

hear the calls

that warn them all:

the cat is on the prowl.


Listen to the sound of the house finch and other birds here:


Search the BirdNote site for your favorite bird. For instance, I typed ‘cardinal’ in the site’s search bar and found many articles about different cardinals.

Write a poem, draw a picture, try to record your version of its song.
