We have our small flock of hens who are at the point of laying, so every day I eagerly wait for the sound of the egg song or the first egg. Today I was reading in our den when I heard the egg song! I knew it wasn't from our older hen because she had already laid this morning and sang her song, so off outside I go. But I stood totally baffled the sound wasn't coming from the chicken run or hen house. So back inside I go to finish my book until a few minutes later I hear the egg song again, I am determined to find out who is singing. I imagine the neighbors were starting to worry about me, I was up and down the yard, looking here and there trying to find the voice of the one singing the egg song. Low and behold I found the singer, it was a Mocking Bird sitting up in our neighbors tree it was hopping around all over the place singing the egg song so it took me a bit to locate him. I gave the mocking bird a good scolding and went back to my book.
