And Now It Is February!

February 2016 Blog Header

Row #1: Brightneedle, "Valentines" - "Be My Valentine"; Brightneedle, "Valentines" - "Be Mine"
Row #2: Heart in Hand, "Collector's Heart 2013".
Row #3: Heart in Hand, "For Keeps"; A Needle and Fred, "Heart Squares".

Let's celebrate a new month with a song!

With mild temperatures, the Song Sparrows seem to think spring is close at hand.  

They've been singing up a storm.

It was rather neat to be able to watch the bird as different parts of the song call for different muscles.  Look at the throat muscles on the bottom left. The bird was still singing though his beak was closed.

Singing away...

It was a call and response as there were two birds.
This one...

...and this one!

First one would sing...

...and then the other one would answer.
