Morning birdsong

This morning I had my usual day 5 of cycle early a.m. insomnia. Laying in bed, deciding whether to get up or not, I heard a whippoorwill. I have never seen or heard one before, but the song was quite distinctive. And according to a short but seemingly well-referenced Wikipedia article, they are nocturnal birds whose range includes my location.

Hearing that song just made my morning.

Twice in the past year when I've had insomnia I've had the joy of hearing an owl in my yard. I sure would love to see her, too!
