Nature's Chorus Outside My Door

Today has been a busy day spent analyzing data and drafting sub-sections of BROG's next HICSS paper due on the 15th, helping hubby switch out our refrigerator for a "new to us" version we picked up at a yard sale before my trip to San Antonio, and doing domestic goddess duties like grocery shopping.

Shortly I am off to bed where I'm sure I will sleep soundly absorbing the lovely natural chorus that is currently performing outside my house. Our local Northern Mockingbird has taken to spending much of the night singing in the pine tree in the east yard. Tonight he has been joined by baritone accompaniment, a Grey Treefrog who is worshiping his muse in the yew underneath my kitchen windows. They make quite a wonderful chorus. You can hear the sounds individual through these sound files Copes Grey Treefrog in MP3 file and the Northern Mockingbird in wav file.

It's interesting that in Indiana a single bird will do so much singing. When I was in Alabama I saw Northern Mockingbirds everywhere often five or six times a day, but in the eighteen months I was there I never heard a single mockingbird sing. To sad, because it would have been a lovely performance with that many choral members...imagine the Mormon Tabernacle Choir of the bird world.
