Lisa Davis: What does the bird say?


Like many people who have been stuck at home, I’ve become a novice birdwatcher. Some of the birds I see are easy to identify, like the wild turkey that wandered into the yard, or the two vultures that decided to perch on my back deck one day. (Let me say that again: There were VULTURES. On my DECK.)

But a lot of times I hear the birds more than I see the birds, so I’ve been trying to learn bird sounds. For instance, I now know that a wild turkey tromping through dead leaves sounds like a small dinosaur. Looks like a small dinosaur, too, come to think of it.
