It's raining birds!

By
Real Estate Agent with CastNet Realty TREC#263257

It's been cloudy all day long.  It rained a lot last night.  We have had storms in various places and light rain at times, then heavy downpours.  All in all, we've been blessed with about 2 inches of rain.  The forecast calls for more rain for several more days.

I am happy about the rain because we have been in a small drought.  I am glad the land is getting watered and I'm sure all the wildlife and the vegetation likes it too.  bird feeder

While sitting at my computer, I began to hear a noise that sounded like water dripping.  I looked all  around, could not see a problem.  I went back to typing but I heard it again.  I opened the window to hear it better.  My first thought was the rain gutters dripping excess from the roof.  No, it was not that. 

Listening more carefully, I was surprised to discover it was bird noises.  They are so happy about the rain, I suppose.  They are louder now and it is easy to tell, it is birds.  Those are unusual sounds they are making.  It is like a thump, a pop, a drip.  It is so remarkable.  I've never heard these sounds before and I like bird watching.

We have some new birds on the feeder lately.  Maybe, they are just passing through.  But bird sounds that mimic rain drops is a new one on me.  Don't you just love nature!

Yes, Will Hamm,  That is a good observation.  "When they are happy", I guess it's that happiness that's contagious to us.

Hi Endre', Some states would love to give your part of the world some of that rain right now.  Too bad it can't be evenly distributed.

Ricki, Birds are a great distraction.  Fun how they got your attention. A blue jay seems to like your offerings!

There is a Birds group here if you have interest in posting there.  Hope okay to share link.
