Time To Get Up
A plangent chorus
of early birds
My wake up call this day
Busy at work
singing and feeding
without hesitation or delay
along the river bed
Their rattling bugle call
can be heard for miles
enough to wake the dead

Sandhill cranes have such an interesting call – great subject for a wake up call.
Thank you! I call birds Nature’s Orchestra 🙂
Jealous of this beautiful wakeup call.
The good thing is, it’s never as many as in the photo. Thank goodness! 🙂
I love to be woken by birds, as long as it’s not too early 🙂
Yes, it is such a lovely sound 🙂
I love the sounds of birds calling in the morning – just not too loud, smiles.
🙂 Me too Grace
LOVE your early birds’ wake-up revelry!
Thanks Lyn! 🙂💕
I’ve only seen solitary cranes. It must be nice to see or hear so many.
I never see that many at once. Usually they are in their family units. 2 -4 Mom, Dad and babies 🙂💕
