I swear Mexican birds cheep louder than any where else. I am sitting here at my expansive living room window, where my desk faces out onto tall trees and trying to read the latest chapters for one of the grad classes I am taking and I can’t concentrate.
The birds are so happy in these trees. The birds are just plain happy here in Mexico. Occasionally I get a hummingbird to come visit me at my window. I finally discovered that right next to my office window, on the balcony next door is a plant full of blossoms. So it wasn’t me my little friend was visiting at all. But glorious to hear and see anyway.
On my roof top I see these guys in swarms: Inca doves, cooing and pacing and fluffing just as they should.
These guys are everywhere making a racket. Maybe they are the ones bringing me out of my books: Grackles. What a perfect name.
These beauties I have yet to see, but now that I know they are here in quantity, I will keep a look out: Cardinal Flycatchers.
