Nightingale

Last night I had about three or four Nightingales singing me a lullaby and they decided to sing all night and are still singing early this morning. It is beautiful and I tried to record their music, but only one cooperated, for I know they could see me and I could not see them. They were right outside the window and happy as could be to play with me in the dark…

Maybe I will get a better recorder, since they seem to want to sing me to sleep. I need to record them without me moving to get close enough to hear them. They are all over the yard and yesterday, I found several nests. I made sure not to disturb those areas as I cut out scrub brush, for I want lots of singing birds in the village yard…

It was funny last night, I sit up to record them and they shut up, then I lay back down and they sing and sing and sing. They also follow me around the yard in the daytime and tell me what to do, how to do it and why I should do it this or that way. Bossy little things…

At least one of them sang a little for me, but as soon as the others shut up, he then did the same himself after a few seconds. I will get a better recording, for this time I will be ready for them…
