Use what talents you possess; the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best. ~ Henry Van Dyke
A Yellow-headed Blackbird stands on a tree stump, calling out to his mate. He's impressive to look at but not to hear: he may have the worst song of any North American bird, a hoarse, harsh, scraping. Despite his voice, he demands attention and sings with reckless abandon. I think we can learn a lot from the Yellow-headed blackbird.
