Even in the city, there are trees throughout, providing food and shelter to many birds butterflies and bees. The birds especially, like to wake up early and greet the fresh new day with their song. I think of it as a song of gratitude.
In this drawing are some of the birds that I heard. I used the Merlin app to identify them by song, then I found reference for the drawings online as I looked each one up. I knew they were there because I heard them but it’s much harder to see them. They are tiny and they blend in with the abundant leaves of the trees.
