Sage Thrasher

We watched and mostly listened as this male Sage Thrasher sang his long and complex song from the top a the sage brush on a quiet dirt road.

According to All About Birds “males have long, complex, melodic songs, with remarkable variety. The rambling series of phrases, often preceded by soft clucking notes, is continuous and interspersed with moments of repetition and mimicry. Songs can be very long indeed; one male was recorded singing for 22 minutes straight.”

While this guys song was not a whopping 22 minutes it did go on and on leaving me out of breath just listening.


Empty the bucket

Once_again_3425 copy

We all need just a wee bit of time to empty the bucket before it overflows and makes a mess on the floor.

A bit of time to let your brain drain of that endless stream of information you have taken. Information we cannot process or act on to slip away.

Just a few minutes to shut off the flow and open the drain.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.
