    blue jay
    crying in the cemetery –
    here, then there


    this happened exactly one week ago for me.

    but "wrenching" is It..
    i have many catbirds here by the river bank.
    i just keep hearing it slightly different each time i read it. i guess that's kinda catbird. angry squirrel sound.
