My Alarm Clock

This fellow is my personal alarm clock, but not a very reliable one. This bird lives somewhere in the bushes on the side of my bedroom window, and it usually picks a fight with its reflection off my window, knocking and waking me up early mornings. The duration of the fight is unpredictable, and it is as elusive as elusive can be. This morning, I went outside at 7:30 AM after the first few knocks and staked it out in vain. This is my best shot from inside at this bird for the few seconds it was resting on a branch. It is as gray as the gray sky this morning, and I forgive its trespassing. No problem! Come wake me anytime you feel lonely.

Gray Bird, My Friend
