The Catbird Seat

That catbird's back in town. It's taken a seat somewhere near my window and I often hear it out there mewing and mewing. Is it trying to pretend it's a predator, or what? But despite the predatory sounds they make, I rather like catbirds. Lots of migratory birds are coming back to town and I look forward to talking with them as soon as it's warm enough to open the window. I won't be sitting in any catbird seat when I do that, though. I will take my usual parrot seat on the windowsill.

Shadow: Mary Ann and I are sleeping out on the deck tonight. We like to hear the birdsong in the early morning hours. Want to join us?
