A Song Thrush Sings - Cameos of Birdlife #4
It’s early morning. Still dark. A pale moon hangs in the sky as the pre-dawn light rims the nearby mountains. A Buzzard mews; an owl hoots from the nearby woods. As the garden trees take shape a Song Thrush breaks into song - hesitantly at first; but then full and vibrant - lost in its own joy of singing ...
first light the song of a song thrush
The day breaks gently over the mountains in shades of pastel pink and baby blue. The Song Thrush, still singing, is echoed by another from up in the Churchyard.
Just listen ... ‘tis Spring (maybe)!
