I was sitting outside reading "The No A**hole Rule" and enjoying the wonderful weather. Eventually I became aware of some birds calling back and forth to each other. I thought I recognized the call but wanted to confirm it by sight, so I got my binoculars and walked down the road a bit to try and spot them. A little girl came riding by on her bicycle and I smiled at her. She asked me, "Is that a tufted titmouse?" Wow! It blew me away! "Yes, it is," I answered. "You have good ears."
I can't even imagine knowing the call of a tufted titmouse at her age. I was so impressed! Wow.
