Birdsong

This fellow was singing rather loudly when I passed under the tree.  I thought he deserved a moment of Blogosphere fame.

Any idea of what kind of bird it is?

Old Chinese proverb: Be wary of idling under tree where bird is singing.

I think he was singing because he is glad that he lives in Arizona at this time of year.

Don't ever take for granted the beauty of birdsong. It is the sound that brings tears of joy to my eyes when winter starts to lose its grip and spring is waiting around the corner. Through the long white winter it is rare, rare, rare to hear the song of a bird. I love looking at yours and imagining.

Hahahahaha! I was thinking what Kathy's proverb is reminding us.

I love his speckles. Very handsome.

I think the guy earned his spot. You gotta reward hard work.

Like brattcat, I love the sound of birds in my yard. I love to wake up to the song of a mocking bird. (still hanging around, but not singing yet). I don't know what bird this is though. I thought it was a grackle but it doesn't look quite right.

I love the song of birds also. They always put a smile on my face. And I get lost in the moment of trying to locate the singer. I believe this is a Curve Billed Thrasher.

Yes I agree he does deserve a spotlight. Wish we could hear his song.

What was he singing. Hopefully you didn't stand directly underneath him to listen!

Nice photo and a nice treatment!

He's a great looking fellow and beautifully framed!

For long years birds were only sound for me. True. When I started painting I realized how perfect their bodies were. Great shot.
