My Treasure
As we reach that point in the story where the hero expresses his longing....
He flies to a sunlit branch and quietly begins his song.


"‘Il mio tesoro’ has no high notes, but it requires both beauty of tone and extraordinary technique. To fully realize the aria the singer must have endless breath, great facility with coloratura singing, while maintaining the purest cantilena. It has long passages which should be taken in a single breath. Tenors who do not have sufficient reserves of air either take a breath where there shouldn’t be one or take the piece at a faster tempo reducing the need for an occult breath. " Neil Kurtzman

Another glorious day.

"... black mustard is so ubiquitous that it’s not on the [ top 25 most persistent and dangerous non-native plant species] list.

“It would probably be easier to get another man on the moon than to get rid of this invasive plant on a regional scale,” Algiers, a restoration ecologist for Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, says."

We watched the pair feed fledglings...."caught him singing full tilt, though his bill was full of insects! After we had turned our backs I looked over my shoulder and had the satisfaction of seeing him take his beakful to the nest. You couldn't help admiring him, for though not a warrior who would snap his bill over the head of an enemy of his home, he had a gallant holiday air with his blue coat and merry song, and you felt sure his little brown mate would get cheer and courage enough from his presence to make family dangers appear less frightful." from "A-Birding on a Bronco" Florence A. Merriam

"Just like we each have our own voice, each male Lazuli Bunting sings a unique combination of notes. Yearling males generally arrive on the breeding grounds without a song of their own. Shortly after arriving, they create their own song by rearranging syllables and combining song fragments of several males. The song they put together is theirs for life."allaboutboids

Jerry took W9 and me out to Malibu Creek State Park. We saw some great birds and now know there is a splash zone around our picnic table. My full cup of ice cold Fosters went over when the wind lifted a sandwich wrapper. I know! I was almost in tears. Birding hazards!
I was very touched by the nice comments and faves for the June collage.
Notes on this one say "too good to put into collage."
I hope. Or maybe the heat in Los Angeles has softened my brains?
