Just today I noticed that the morning was very quiet. No bird song. Usually in the summer the song starts around five am and is quite loud in Oak Park. It occurred to me it's been very quiet for about two weeks. Have all the song birds left? Do they only sing in certain temperatures? Is it a diet thing? What is it? What the hell is happening?!?!
