Stupid birds! Although to tell you the truth I used a different word when I discovered that I was NOT hearing a Black-throated Green Warbler last week. Anyone want to hazard a guess at what bird I was hearing?
A Chickadee. Can you believe that? I was leaving on Saturday and heard the elusive “zeee zoo zoo zee!” It was close but of course I had no binoculars. Then I heard it again and I looked up. In the dead elm along the driveway there was the bird singing that song and to my surprise it was a Chickadee. So disappointing. Oh well, they can do that to you!
