IF: Early

 Early Birds on a Century Plant, squawkin' away very early in the morning.

So yeah, they say that the early bird gets the worm.  I am surprised of just how many early birds live in Phoenix and squawk and sing and chirp and coo very early before the sun rises outside my bedroom window.  Thanks early birds for waking me up hours before my alarm clock goes off!  I work from home now and I like to sleep in, you know.  Your songs are pretty and very different from the birds back home in Baltimore, but that is just too freakin' early guys. 

The birds they sing at break of day, "Start again!" I hear them say.  -Leonard Cohen

So I guess I need to become an early bird too.  Are you an early bird?  I've always been more of a nocturnal creature myself.

I've learned to sleep through the birds. The yard crews though, not so much...

Nice to see somebody else quote Cohen. I like being awakened by the early birds... but then going back to sleep. Mocking birds "courting" are especially vocal. Nice piece.

Very nice! I really like how you shillouetted the birds against the sky.

This is so gorgeous-- I love the stylized tree and the sky, and, oh right, those birds!

I hope you are settling in and loving it there!

(And I am soooo a morning person!)
