EARLY BIRDS - FOLD
Day Clean and Kiskadee,
They say are the worm catchers
Of the fattest kind you see,
They sing dawn's clearing,
These two; Day Clean and Kiskadee,
Here in Trinidad and Tobago;
Pigeons stir early, but as for me,
Song of kis kis ka dee, i listen for;
Grackles too charge their strange fee
To chorus of morning's awakenings,
Adding songs to Day Clean and Kiskadee.

  1. To me those are exotic birds, unknown here. I love to wake to the musical call of our Magpies (a different kind from the Northern Hemisphere maggies) but often it is the screech of the nasty little Noisy Miners instead.

  6. We have the Great Kiskadee here in South Texas. Ours eat lizards, small fish, and berries. I haven't seen one yet, guess I should be looking in my palm tree. I don't know of the Day Clean.
    I learned a bit. Thank You.

  10. Each of us in our respective regions enjoy those early morning songsters, I'm sure. It's always silent in winter, and the first hint of Spring is announced by birdsong...such a welcome!
