I Love Birds! I became a Birder a few years ago, and that decision changed my life for the better. It's thrilling to see them in Nature—birds have always been there, but I never really noticed them until recently. Western Meadowlarks are one of my favorite birds because their lovely birdsong heralds in the arrival of Springtime. When Meadowlarks sing, they puff out their chests, open their beaks, and courageously belt out their beautiful song.

That's me on the acoustic guitar, with Kyle Zender adding charming lead acoustic guitar, and Hill Baker on the Cajon and the Udu—an African clay percussion instrument—and the ingenious shaker sound created with Hill's bare hands—love it!
