We Sang Every Day

by Avem

Blue Jay 01:34
Blue Jay (Cyanocitta cristata) One of the loudest and most colourful birds of eastern back yards and woodlots, the Blue Jay is unmistakable. Intelligent and adaptable, it may feed on almost anything, and it is quick to take advantage of bird feeders. Besides their raucous jay! jay! calls, Blue Jays make a variety of musical sounds, and they can do a remarkable imitation of the scream of a Red-shouldered Hawk. Not always conspicuous, they slip furtively through the trees when tending their own nest or going to rob the nest of another bird. * Northern Cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis) One of our most popular birds, the Cardinal is the official state bird of no fewer than seven eastern states. Abundant in the Southeast, it has been extending its range northward for decades, and it now brightens winter days with its colour and its whistled song as far north as southeastern Canada. Feeders stocked with sunflower seeds may have aided its northward spread. West of the Great Plains, the Cardinal is mostly absent, but it is locally common in the desert Southwest. * Peregrine Falcon (Falco Peregrinus) One of the world's fastest birds; in power-diving from great heights to strike prey, the Peregrine may possibly reach 200 miles per hour. Regarded by falconers and biologists alike as one of the noblest and most spectacular of all birds of prey. Although it is found on six continents, the Peregrine is uncommon in most areas; it was seriously endangered in the mid-20th century because of the effects of DDT and other persistent pesticides. * European Starling (Sturnus vulgaris) Often regarded as a pest, the Starling wins our grudging admiration for its adaptability, toughness, and seeming intelligence. Brought to North America in 1890, it has spread to occupy most of the continent, and is now abundant in many areas. Sociable at most seasons, Starlings may gather in immense flocks in fall and winter. When the flocks break up for the breeding season, males reveal a skill for mimicry, interrupting their wheezing and sputtering songs with perfect imitations of other birds. * American Robin (Turdus migratorius) A very familiar bird over most of North America, running and hopping on lawns with upright stance, often nesting on porches and windowsills. The Robin's rich caroling is among the earliest bird songs heard at dawn in spring and summer, often beginning just before first light. In fall and winter, robins may gather by the hundreds in roaming flocks, concentrating at sources of food. * Chicken (Gallus gallus Domesticus) It tastes good. Ring-billed Gull (Shithawk) (Larus delawarensis) Often the most common and widespread gull in North America, especially inland, and numbers are probably still increasing. Sociable at all seasons; concentrations at nesting colonies or at winter feeding sites may run into the tens of thousands. The Ring-bill has adapted thoroughly to civilization. Flocks are often seen resting in parking lots, scavenging scraps around fast-food restaurants, or swarming over landfills. * Rock Pigeon (Columba livia) Few birds have been associated with humans so closely as the Rock Pigeon, better known as the common city pigeon. It has been domesticated and taken around the world, raised for food (GROSS), trained for homing, racing, and carrying messages, and used in research. Originally native from Europe to North Africa and India, it now lives in a wild or semi-wild condition in cities all over the world, including most of North America. In places it has reverted to wild habits, nesting on cliffs far from cities. * * (www.audubon.org/field-guide) (All information gathered from/provided by the Audubon Society)
Martian Wren 02:27
Went for a walk with my binoculars (going for a walk) Hope to see a piper or a meadowlark (hope I snag a snipe) That's when I saw it standing there looking at me That fucking Martian Wren From Mars is always haunting me Don't you see it standing over there It flew up and shit right in my hair It wants inside my derrière Oh why oh why
Rotten Egg 03:11
I think it's time to break free, break out through the membrane, but it stinks. What's up with my mommy, why's she being shitty, just to me? I thought that as a child I'd lead a perfect life. You'd puke food in my mouth all day and every night. We'd swoop through trees, learn to sing our perfect song; I was wrong. doesn't matter if you're faberge, cadbury, or in decay doesn't matter what you came from, only who you are all you've gotta do is sing, migrate and become the king of your flock so you can lead them home to start it again All these other birdlings, with their opportunities, why not me? I will try the hardest. He who flies the farthest. You will see! There was a time when i was learning how to fly. Our parents wouldn't help, I can't figure out why. Never give up and you will surely reach the sky..as did I.
Sing every day, yeah! Sing every day.. Sing every day. It doesn't matter if the sun's out. It doesn't matter if it's raining. It doesn't matter if my flock is headed South, I'll still be singing. It doesn't matter if the sun's out. It doesn't matter if it's hailing. It doesn't matter if a cat ate my true love, I'll still be singing.
