Bird Ballad #2: Barn Swallow

Nothing fancy here. I'm teaching myself the basics, by which I mean the basics of my day, by which I mean the darn barn swallows that wake me up each morning with their incessant twitterings. I will say this, though: since I've poked through a bird-watching book, identified the creature within the "bluebird" category, and matched its song to the sounds linked below, I seem to have forgiven the little things. Perhaps knowledge makes the heart grow fonder?

My goodness, whatever are they talking about?


  1. They are saying "Wake up! It's a beautiful morning! Wake up! It's a wonderful day!"

    Or maybe not.

  2. Ha! Yes, it depends on the day, I'm sure. :)
