Nature's harmony

April 30, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

On Wednesday 4/27 I made a wonderful hike in Four-Mile Creek in Webster. Early in my walk I stood for many minutes listening to 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10?...white-throated sparrows singing all around me. Each of the singing birds was starting at different times, on different pitches and sometimes singing variations.  It was harmony from dissonance that only nature can compose.  The photo below is one of the many white-throated sparrows scratching on the ground in the dead leaves for food that day.  Click on this link  https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/White-throated_Sparrow/sounds and listen to the sound clips of the bird's sweet and distinct song.
