As I started down the road from Regal-Hill on my daily walk this morning I saw a gold finch flying from one tree to another. Soon I saw a red-winged black bird and then I heard a woodpecker hammering on a tree. Walking toward home, near the same bunch of trees, I saw a robin on the road ahead of me. As I got closer it flew into a tree. This time of year it is always nice to see and hear the birds sing as they begin a new morning.
