A Panoply of Song

My apologies for a random post, perhaps a bit lame, and out of line from what this blog is usually about, but...

I had a bit of a moment the other day. I crashed at my parents' house, in my old room, and had trouble sleeping. The 'whit, whit' of an excited Wood Thrush woke me up, soon followed by a scolding Carolina Wren right outside the window.

While this was going on my alarm kicked on and fired up the following beauty by the Decemberists:



Waking up to a song describing exactly what I was hearing was unexpected. Honestly it was one of those moments that can't really be described in words...and can't really be appreciated via blog.

"The thrushes' bleating battle with the wrens/
Disrupts my reverie again"
