But it’s January, guys!

Nice and warm, and I wonder if it might be blowing the birds’ minds.

Yesterday I heard a house finch in full song on the parking garage across the street from work.

And today, a cardinal doing the “Feww, feww, wheat wheat wheat wheat” business!

    Heard and saw some robins doing some of their chatter yesterday, but still nary a song. Except a little bit from those cute li’l juncoes.

    House finch in song today! L. called me to say that she’d heard one, and I was like, OMG, me too! I couldn’t tell for sure, but it looked like maybe he wasn’t in full breeding plumage yet – he looked a little drab.

    First cardinal of the year today (apart from the ones which have been making their gym-shoe squeak sound all winter). It was doing the fwitt-fwitt-fwitt-[descending trill] song.

    First mockingbird of the year was yesterday, along with a blue jay doing its “crushing a handful of nutshells” call.

    First unambiguous robin I heard, doing the tweedle-dum tweedle-dee stuff, was last night. And this morning – wonderful! – a song sparrow on my back fence in Somerville. His song didn’t seem fully developed – maybe a juvenile? It was sort of hesitant and experimental, and didn’t start with the usual strong high “Maids Maids” notes.

    I was studying something else about this on another blog. Interesting. Your perspective on it is novel. – Certainty? In this world nothing is certain but death and taxes. – Benjamin Franklin 1706 – 1790

    I believe the information described in your publication is actually outstanding. I’ve been working on a preliminary research project on this topic and your blog really enlightened me with a number of concerns that I had. I am composing a term paper for college and I?m currently following several blogs for review.

    I am speechless. This is a superb blog and very engaging too. Nice work! That’s not really much coming from an amateur publisher like me, but it’s all I could think after reading your posts. Great grammar and vocabulary. Unlike other blogs. You really know what you’re talking about too. So much that you made me want to learn more. Your blog has become a stepping stone for me, my friend. Thanks for the detailed journey. I really enjoyed the 8 posts that I have read so far.
