One of the early sounds of spring, for me.
Red-winged Blackbird (Agelaius phoeniceus) singing. You can't actually see him in the video, sorry.1
There's also a Northern Cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis) near the middle, and an Eastern Towhee (Pipilo erythrophthalmus)2 at the end. You may need to turn the sound up to hear them.
I wasn't even aware of the background highway noise until I uploaded the video. I'm not sure if the camera is just sensitive to it, or if I've desensitized myself to the point I no longer notice it.
1That's my workshop, aka Handmade Soap General, that you see through the cedar. Hubby calls it the Soap Empire sometimes, especially when saying things like, "When is this Soap Empire is ever going to make us any money?"
2The bird formerly known as the Rufous-sided Towhee. He's the one singing, "drink your teaaaaaaa".
P.S. To everyone who didn't call yesterday: we're fine. An F2 tornado came through the county in the morning, but didn't touch down too near us. We got a little hail though. And a lot of phone calls afterwards.
