I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

      1. Early morning is the best time to hear them. Later, the magpies and woodpeckers and jays make a bit of a din.
        To hear birds singing in the city is a privilege.

      2. I thought it was urban where you live. Anywhere with a pavement is urban as far as I’m concerned though not necessarily city. It’s good to know the birds can stand Philadelphia. Can’t be too messed up.
