Ah!

After many years, the joy of hearing again the sound of the whippoorwills singing at night! From Sis and Jimmy's sunroom, the sound is clear as a bell. Beautiful!

No finer song among birds of the night.
Here in the South, the whippoorwills have a slightly different accent--maybe an extra syllable due to that drawl--so that they say 'Chuck Will's Widow.'

One of the greatest joys in Maryland is listening to the birds sing in the morning.
