So quiet!

Add caption

The sun is shining today. The garden is so quiet. What is missing?

Oh! The Cedar Wax wings are gone. Now that they have disappeared I realize that I was enjoying the sounds they make. Chatter: they talk to each other constantly while waiting to take turns at the cedar trees. Whoosh: they fly in smaller groups to the tree by the garden. Clatter: the birds shake the branches of the tree as they feed and many seeds hit the ground with a clatter. Then Whoosh: together they fly back over my head to the cottonwood tree to await their next turn.
