Flicker-jee, my catbird, has been unheard of for weeks now.
This morning he picks to speak up.
Half an hour before I'm supposed to get up.
I don't know why he's been quiet, I can't remember if that means he's been raising a chick.
The goldfinches have been taking his place in a way.
Two of them had an argument over my sunflowers this past weekend.
It's been quiet since so I guess they settled it.
