  1. I enjoyed your dawn chorus so much today Gill. Each photo a bit further into the day, lovely. I’ve started a new habit about a month ago of going out onto the back deck before dawn, which I LOVE now. It is so very special to hear the cacophony of bird song in the dark, yet to not SEE any birds or movement. I find it a sacred experience, and was grateful to you for sharing yours. Then I clicked on the recording and had a surprise and a big smile to hear your delightful recording. Thank you my friend. 😀 😀


    1. How lovely to know you are out there at dawn. It is a special time and it was wonderful here today! I think the birds get used to you being part of the scene so they are especially useful when they begin to fly about looking for the best place to pose or relax or snooze like they seem to do in the rays of the sun. I find where they sit leads you to the best view! (sounds crazy) The sun has been brilliant all day. The color of today’s sunrise was such a rich warm looking color it really has matched the day…. that’s when I thought about the song. It is very summery today. Hope you were not too disappointed that it wasn’t bird song. I did do a recording of the blackbird sitting on the roof today but I need to get better at it before putting results here! Thanks Jet so much for your kind words here! 🙂 🙂
