“The birds are a chorus…clearly relatives of Mozart” — Jim Harrison
Okay, so not the crows.
Crows murder a song.
You should pardon the expression.
Definitely not jays, grackles, or hawks.
Nor seafaring birds of any kind.
Woodpeckers can belt out a solo now and then.
Cranes create a whoop-de-doo,
but nothing melodious bleeds through.
Eagles and buzzards just cannot carry a tune.
Finches, warblers, and Mockingbirds rock.
Robins have a voice, but a limited repertoire.
Barred Owls? Maybe Bach.
This is part of “28 Days of Unreason”
based on prompts taken from poems
by Jim Harrison.
