Suddenly it is spring...and summer...

Windows are open here today...furnace is off!

We have had a long cold spring. Today it turned into a summer-like day just like that! Never mind summer doesn't start until June...

Last spring and summer...if you remember...a very loud mockingbird awakened me every night as it sang until the dawn for several months. It was always just a few feet from my window.

Well this year it has been noisy directly outside the bedroom. Robins have built a nest right over an upstairs window on an eave.

Mother robin likes to get an early start. When the sun comes up and she begins to chirp. I cannot see the eggs so will have to wait and watch...and listen.

Thankfully, it does not sing all night! Still, I feel really tired every morning....

Between unseasonably warm weather and bird and songs, I do believe it actually is spring now! Just a few days it will be the first of May! Time is flying!

As always,

enjoy the day!

I am so happy I read this post! We have been wondering for years what bird sings all night! We thought it was everything from crickets to soon as I read your post I did some research and found an audio of the mockingbird...I was so whole family thanks you!
