"His mission is song."

Two thrashers are nesting outside our kitchen window in a tall holly bush and we could not be happier with our new tenants. 

I turned to Hal Borland to learn more about them and found that they enjoy singing..........

          many phases put together a hundred ways

          trademark is the repeated phrase

          long, intricate songs

          can sound like a flute, piccolo, violin

          sings morning and evening for hours at a time

          rests at midday and dark of night

"But his mission is song."

Hal Borland

I love this more than I can tell you.

And I have my concert tickets in hand, front row and center.
