We've had a brown thrasher singing in and near our yard sporadically for
about a week here in Tampa, and we have seen two together. They have nested
in a hedge row for the past 3 years, and it looks like they may be back
again this year!

The following is from Gail Menk.
"On 21 & 22 Feb, I heard Brown Thrashers sing locally as poeticized
below, and on the latter date a Northern Parula at Piney-Z. Have heard
that El Nino will keep March temperatures coolish - dig that recent
record-breaking one of 18 degrees. Also, record-breaking for me has
been attacks of cold fingers this winter.
SONG OF THE BROWN TRASHER
Good enough for me!
I'm alive, you see.
Sun shining, no repining;
Never borrow idle sorrow;
Drop it! Cover it up!
Hold your cup!
Joy will fill it,
Don't spill it!
Steady, be ready,
Love your luck.
- H. van Dyke
Spring is here (again)"
