My favorite noisy neighbor

IMG_3953Other than the usual suspects — coyotes — the chief noisemakers in my neighborhood lately are these guys, Curve-bill thrashers. I could listen to them chatter and sing all day. The biggest kick in the pants is when one perches at the top of your chimney and turns your fireplace into a megaphone. That’ll get your day started.
