The Great American Songbird.
We are now off to Connecticut where we will get our first glimpse of the Great American Songbird. If you go to any state in the union (except Hawaii), you will see and hear this magnificent bird. It is partially domesticated and is a familiar fixture in parks and neighborhoods across the country. During the spring, the rich liquid tones of it's song begins well before sunrise. It is seen on lawns looking for food and can easily be observed in trees feeding it's young. This bird gives the naked eye of the casual observer a wonderful view into the world of birds. America's national bird, of course, is the Bald Eagle and deservedly so. However, if there was a specific vote to be cast to represent America in the songbird category, this wonderful bird which represents Connecticut would get my vote.
