The car's song --
the bird

The starlings learn all kind of sounds; in our garden was one singing the sound of a cellular phone. I took my phone and replied: "Hellou!"

The bird didn't reply.

Oh yes, that's just how it is. One seems to wake the other. Sometimes it's an endless chain of night / early morning noises. The foxes barks wake the gulls who answer back. And in the middle of it all, us trying to sleep.
