You may have noticed that mornings sound livelier as new songbirds arrive with each passing week.
We have been serenaded by Robins for a while but Song and Chipping Sparrows, Eastern Phoebes, Juncos and the pint-sized kinglets each add a new dimension to spring sounds. A small number of warblers have returned as well but in a few weeks their numbers will swell, joined by the arrival of thrushes, vireos, orioles and flycatchers. The dawn chorus lifts our spirits, telling us it is good to be alive.
