Haiku: Overnight Aria

Singing at 2 a.m…who does that? The mockingbird, of course. I suspect we have a healthy population of them here, based on the nests I’ve come across over the years and the sheer numbers of them I’ve seen at the feeders. Clever creatures, they are. And, when the stillness of night (or the predawn wee hours) reigns, they’re loud.

While I appreciate the mockingbird’s enthusiasm, I do wish it would stick to singing during daylight hours..! 😄
