The beach house where we vacationed had a very large porch that overlooked Wellfleet Harbor. It had a stunning view of the ocean. I would often sit on one of the porch chairs and soak in the beautiful summer sights and breathe in the salty-sweet, cool ocean breezes.
But what I miss most about my time spent on the porch....was the sound of the birds singing in the scraggly pine trees that surrounded us.
This is a Canada Warbler. There were several of these birds who flitted about from branch to branch singing their melodious songs.
It is their songs that I miss most.
