Bird Songs

We had some real birdsong, and now we shall have songs about birds. About a year or so I was looking at the songs I had downloaded and realized that there were a lot about birds, and here they are. I'm not going to say much about them, but I love them all for different reasons. Some are happy and some are sad and some are funny.

Emmylou-If I had a bird, little bird, I would teach that bird to sing your name. 

Go away little bluebird, you're too darn happy for me and my broken heart.

Hard to be sad when you listen to this one.

Although, I don't really believe that the littlest birds sing the prettiest songs. Of course, a hummingbird may be singing some lovely melody that we can't hear, but I don't think that counts.

Hard to sit still when you listen to this one.

Hard to keep from laughing when you listen to this one. I think about the way the lyrics to this song would be received today and it cracks me up.

No more birds. I don't own this one yet. I wish I did.

And if you want to read something seriously good about bird song, you should go here--but do it when you have some time. It's the best.



  1. Great Emmylou Harris song. I hadn't heard it before. Don't have time to listen to more right now. I remember that EB song very well. I'm a big fan of theirs.

  2. Maybe Emmylou should sing, "If I had a bird, little bird, I would teach that bird to spell your name.

    I'd not heard that Innocence Mission song before and I really like it. I know they have another song with birds in it, but I can't remember which one it is.
