Drum Circle

By |April 28, 2020|Birds, Natural History, Videos|

These past couple of weeks I've been waking up just before daybreak more and more as the dawn chorus gets louder and louder. The dawn chorus is the raucous singing of birds of all different species singing their little hearts out as the sun begins to rise. They begin just before dusk (around 4:30am outside my window) and for a couple of hours as the sun comes up. In grad school, I heard someone describe it as the birds "giving thanks for another day." While a nice thought, this phenomenon has nothing to do with gratitude.
