This is a meadowlark! He's singing, "If all the raindrops were candy bars and gumdrops, oh, what a rain that would be! Standing outside with my beak open wide, aah-aah ah aah-aah ah aah-aah ah aah!" Because he's trying to catch some raindrops in his mouth! How neat is that? That's pretty neat. Hee hee!
Oh, what a beautiful morning! Oh what a beautiful day!
The Prothonotary Warbler breeds in hardwood swamps in extreme southeastern Ontario and eastern U.S. It winters in the West Indies, Central America and northern South America. The male often builds several incomplete, unused nests in his territory but the female builds the real nest. (Photo by Dennis Derby)
We have been seeing a Red Tail Hawk on our daily walks all winter. Love this bird.
