Sagebrush birdsong


What a lovely piece (“The benediction of a bird,” HCN, 5/28/18). I feel the same about the song of the horned lark — a weightless, upward jumble of notes that never fails to remind me of my home among the sagebrush of the high desert. Thank goodness for birds to fill the air with song when we need a reminder of peace and hope and life.
