Migration noise

Twice a year it comes and fills the sky

I didn't make it to greet the sunrise this morning. But when I did get outside with my tea, I got the "birdsong wall."

The first this fall.

It's a near deafening sound like hundreds of birds all going at once. Amazing intensity. You should see what it does to the local cats.

It'll last for about two or three weeks in the morning and evening as the birds migrate.

Winter will bring the occasional lonely cry. Mostly of crows, occasionally a gull or two. And if I'm really lucky and eat all my vegetables, I may hear the hunting cries of an eagle diving into the desert canyons.

In the spring, I'll get the same thing in reverse.

The Wheel turns and the World touches me.
