House Finches by my House

The birds are starting to get active again.
I hear them singing sometimes in the morning.
It makes me remember spring camping trips in previous years
(when I would wake up an hour before dawn
with riotous bird song ringing through the tent walls).
I'd like to go one one of those trips now.
Meanwhile, I enjoy looking for birds around the neighborhood.
This house finch is a delightful resident,
and we also have robins, magpies, sparrows, doves.
Sometimes I can hear them in the morning,
even through regular walls.
