Page 8 THE WALSH COUNTY PRESS WEDNESDAY, MAY 3, 2017 By Kevin Skavhaug A full musical... It's 5:30 in the morning and someone told the birds it's time to go to work. I guess they don't realize it's Sunday, but I suppose any signal that spring is here can be forgiven for waking me up. Their song is one of the good sounds of summer time music This past Sunday morn- ing's pre-dawn conce was broken up moments later by a Woodpecker who thought he'd rap off a percussion solo on our downspout. That is something that had to be dealt with so I strolled out in my robe to chase him off. I saw him flying south, round about Jay Thomp- son's place sol killed two birds with one stone on that one! Ah, but with four little ones at home he was prob- ably up already anyway. But there is plenty of good music out there this time of year. The honks of Canada Geese is one of my favorite springtime sounds. It's an automatic neck twister every time I hear them. It's sort of a condi- tioned response I guess but whenever a ker-honk is heard, I have to see ifI can get a look at them. Despite the disdain farmers have for them, I'm glad those gi- ant birds were re-introduced to this neck of the woods some 25 years or so ago. Makes for some darn good easy listening. One of my all-time fa- vorite sumlnertime musicals occur late in the day near any country slough. Black- birds; redwinged or yellow headed, chirp out a nice little staccato melody that on a calm summer night, echoes across the pond and can be heard a quarter mile away. Red Winged Black- birds are just one of the great benefits to living min- utes from the great out- doors. There are non-flying mu- sicians out there too. Wood frogs waking upand look- ing for a little romance in the bog creates quite a rack- et this time of year. It re- minds me of a high school band coming in for a per- formance; when they all are warming up their in- struments at the same time. I don't know how band teachers can handle that every day. But the frogs are well taught; [ swear their croaking is done in rounds. This weekend our high school kids will venture off to Minot to put a crescendo on the 2016-.17 music sea- son. Early May is a great time to finish the musical year off. Or if you look at it like the birds do, it'sprob- ably the best time to show- case their talents. r news Do you or your group have a story to tell?
