Hmmm ... I was leaning toward the Eastern Yellow-breasted Chat Icteria virens .. for surely, they're getting active up there - but, I jes can't seem to put my pawsers on any internet handy audio, relatively quickly.
Connie and I went to a place called Wild Birds yesterday. On man oh Man did we get some great ideas for birding "stuff and paraphinalia" (sp.?). There was a CD playing of different bird calls. There on the floor, not far from the check out place, was a beautiful cat, just laying there, looking around. I reached down to pet the cat and thought to myself, I bet you love this. Laying around listening to birds all day long. The longer we stayed there, the more relaxed I became.
I think it's time I found myself a CD of bird songs. It would be nice to bring the birds "inside" the house as well as outside in my backyard.
