Song Sparrow


First, I heard the song. Then, I saw the performer.

The song was beautiful.

It was loud and melodic, with well-spaced notes and it had a distinct trill in the end.

I was expecting to see some exotic canary or guest singer from some Caribbean island.

And when I saw the guy it looked rather disappointing. Nothing impressive at all.

It was a sparrow looking sparrow with watery eyes. I think began to cry when he sang.

To be honest with you, I got emotional too listening to the tune.

The name of this performer is Song Sparrow or Melospiza melodia.

It does sounds beautiful –  Melospiza melodia, doesn’t it?
