Late last summer, I heard an unusual sound -- over and over and over again. It was loud and clear, but I didn't know if it was a bird, a tree frog or some kind of insect/bug. I even did an internet search trying to find out just what I was hearing. Except I couldn't find anything because I couldn't accurately describe the sound.
I now know it's described as "wheedle-wheedle-wheedle" or "peter-peter-peter"
As the weather turned colder, I no longer heard the sound...
Early in February, I saw a new bird visitor in my back yard. I only caught a glimpse of it at first and it was so fast as it moved between the tree branches.
A few days after my first glimpse of this little bird, I heard that sound again. I'm finally able to identify where the sound comes from -- it's the Tufted Titmouse's song!
I hear the Tufted Titmouse much more than I see them. Their song is so loud and clear. I can even hear it when I'm in the house.
Until next time...
