Birds at 4:30AM

In the pre-dawn, I'm hearing a woodcock's twittering dive song followed by his perched raspy peep.

A robin has just begun to call forth

More robins have joined in, one close by, while the woodcock twitters round & round in its spiral flight

The mating call of the woodcock is something you must hear. It starts early while I'm collecting maple sap late March
