The beautiful carrolling of the bird woke me.
Only the briefest flicker of dawn lightened the Eastern sky.
Behind our house from a high treetop another bird joined in the glorious song.
Beneath the canopy of red flowers on the bougainvillea near our bedroom window, I could make out, in the dim light , a small brown bird.
It’s tiny body shook the leaves. The sound vibrated through his minute frame.
The illustration image above is a look-alike only. I have sought advice from experts who know all the species found in S.E. Queensland . It could be one of a possible three.
I only know in the thirty-seven years we have lived here, I have heard the dawn chorus from the throats of many birds.
This week the solo song from this tiny throat remains clear in my heart and mind.
A tiny brown body – a glorious sound.
Do you ever feel unnoticed or not very ‘interesting?
God delights in using the ‘least likely’ to fulfill HIS highest HOLY PURPOSES.
