Incredible, and that thrush song will always be my favorite. What an amazing and haunting sound they make.

LNMP - that must've been neat having that close encounter with a thrush. Often heard; seen less frequently.

Fascinating! I have always loved the song of the Wood Thrush. I think it is one of the most beautiful sounds in the world.

I once found myself just a few feet from a singing Wood Thrush; the bird was perched on a tree branch right above my head. I was in complete awe. It was very difficult to tear myself away from such a performance.

Your recording is a little hard to hear, but I see your point. I'll have to check out the NPR story. Thanks.

ATTENTION

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.

ACCEPTANCE

  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.

RESPONSIBILITY

  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
