It is not unusual to wake to the sounds of the birds where I live. The birds consistently start chatting with each other around 4 in the morning – but yesterday was not the norm – there was definitely something going on with the crows in the front yard – man were they noisy!!!! And just when you thought it couldn’t get any louder, a pack of coy-dogs joined in howling out in the woods behind our house. I’ve heard the wild dogs howling at night – that’s not uncommon around here – but I’ve never heard be so vocal during the day! What a haunting way to start the day…….I wonder what was up?
