You and I must be different. I love to lie down and hear birds, especially the nightingale.

I once met a woman who said she could not stand the sound of birds singing (at any time) It was the strangest thing, I never knew how to respond to that remark. I suppose it is as some people love music, and others hate music?

What you say is true, but mockingbirds can also make sounds that can hardly be construed as music. I used to be visited by one that delighted in camping outside my window and squalling like a love-sick tomcat.

I'm not a music lover anymore but I love hearing the songbirds. The world would seem so strangely quiet and forlorn without their beautiful songs.

We had a robin build a nest on our roll up patio awning,at first did not know it was there.We have a rear roll up garage door where we sit in garage and are entertained by peanut eating chipmunks and blue jays.
We did notice one day some grass hanging down,to late she had eggs,2,so we let them hatch which they did,no damage to awning.

Our escaped ring necked parakeets are the same, not at all musical; but when they are pairing up (or is it pairing off), or when they are feeding their young, they have this lovely song.

Unfortunately we do not get to hear it that often.
