Listening to my neighbors

Not the mooing of cows today.

My other neighbors are talking early this morning.

Their calls aren’t melodious. Sandhill cranes speak in an ancient language, one heard by dinosaurs.

When you are out in the countryside, listen to the small chirps of little birds, but don’t forget to check out the calls of sandhill cranes.
