Before we get to what’s available this week here at the farm, we have made a huge discovery that I would like to share. Apparently the tree outside our bedroom window is a University of sorts for young song birds. Every morning young songbirds, whether it be a college age chickadee, cardinal or robin practice their still unperfected chirps, tweets and songs, while older bird professors correct and sing examples to the still fledgling performers. As soon as the sun comes up class is in session. The youngsters begin with some horrendous, non-melodic sounds that are quickly pounced upon by the adult professionals. It’s as if the student says.” chirp, gobble, tweet, SQUAWK!” And the teacher says,”No, it’s more like this, chirp, chirp, la la, tweet, tweet, ahhh.” This goes on for the first 2 hours of the morning, every morning….loudly. Yesterday I yelled out the window to the campus,”Hey I’m trying to sleep in here!” The class went on. I can only hope that summer vacation is coming soon.
