Day 40 Earth Day Songbirds

Songs of Joy

The voice of feathered creatures come in song

So heedful folks observe and sing along

#EarthDay50 #EarthDay

One of my daily joys is listening to the many songs of the birds in my neighborhood. I should learn who is who !

I know these:

My two favorite:


and meadowlark

of course, robin

so many quail

the lovely canyon wren

soaring above: eagle

Great Horned Owl

the beautiful and intelligent raven
