Hiking through a riot of birdsong

Everybody knows songbirds are going extinct.

Here's a link to a story in National Geographic that proves the point. If it's in National Geographic, you know it must be true.

Except... except when I'm walking the hounds in the morning, my quiet personal thoughts are totally obliterated by the cacophony of birdsong all along our five kilometre route!

No extinction going on in these parts!

If those National Geographic writers ever strayed beyond the confines of DC, they'd realize things aren't as bad as they seem to be...

Here at Falling Downs, the songbirds are so plentiful we gotta reload the bird-feeder three times a day!

It's a beautiful thing!
