The Morning Chorus

White-eyed Vireo

As I am drinking coffee this morning and catching up on a few projects, I  heard the chirping of an American Robin. The song was very slight so I honed in on the sound. I thought to myself, “could it be?…..could it be I am hearing the beginning of the morning chorus?”……….the songs that herald the coming of spring and breeding season? ……then the song stopped.

I refilled my coffee and cracked the kitchen window so as to listen a little closer. Sure enough the cold morning air was filled with bird song. I closed my eyes and listened, and for the first time this year I felt like spring was finally here. I have heard birds chirping for awhile now, but not like this morning, not a full chorus of males singing, trying to impress the feathered females.

I love it…..the simple pleasure of  hearing the morning chorus while drinking my coffee. When you listen close …………..it soothes the soul.

    Lyrical at best, and although I don't have robins in S FL, I've plenty of other feathery and fuzzy friends to get me through the morning coffee, paper, and a shared banana with Cody, my pooch.
