In recent days, and nights, we've started to notice bird, or birds, calling very loudly in the middle of the night, right outside our window. It's quite strange, and with this relatively quiet holiday weekend I thought it would be a good chance to capture the beautiful sounds that are so often drowned out by cars, honking, yelling, music and general city noise.
What bird(s) are singing so loudly? The husband contends it's a mockingbird given the wide variety of calls and that the location doesn't seem to change. Who am I to argue with his midwestern knowledge of all things nature.
Inspired by the bluejay on East 5th Street, I attempted to capture a minute of beautiful bird music to share.
According to one site, mockingbird populations in New York have climbed 10% in recent years and people are complaining about the noise. Personally, I love this noise.
