Gone to the Birds

I had been looking at the traffic that wanders through my blog as of late and I realize that 90% of the folks are doing some search or such on Google or some other search engine for the word Whippoorwill.

I could let this go to my head and figure that so many people around the world had heard about some unique blog down in Florida called the Whipporwill and were coming to find it. But lets be realistic, these people I am guessing are looking up our small rural feathered friend who is singing his eerie song off in a wooded area somewhere.

So 90% of my traffic are ornithologists, birders, bird watchers or students writing a report on our fine feathered friend who happens to have the same name (OK, its close) as my blog and street.

Well here is the link to my Whippoorwill picture and birdsong posted a while back.

I value my garden more for being full of blackbirds than of cherries, and very frankly give them fruit for their songs.

I enjoyed your whiporwill singing. My neice lives about 15 miles so of me and has been hearing them start singing. Around here we say spring is here and no more frost when you hear them. But they can drive you nuts at night and you want to put a cork in their bill. And I can't say that I have ever seen one. The sneaky little birds! DC
