I'll Just Hum
Happy father's day to all the dads! This male red-breasted grosbeak has a distinctive and beautiful song. A metallic-like click, its melodious notes float down from the tree tops on Eighty Acres. In an attempt to mimic the grosbeak and maybe join in a duet, I pursed my lips and with gusto, whistled an ungodly rendition. The grosbeak went completely silent. No more duets! Next time I think I'll just stick to softly humming.
