Jacqueline, first of all, my heartfelt condolences regarding your daughter… And thank you for writing and posting this wonderful piece. I, too, love birds and find them to be lovely creatures. I had the wonderful childhood experience of raising pigeons, and they are so smart and loving companions. Then years ago some hummingbirds made a nest in our garage (good reason to keep that door open!) and I was gifted with watching those tiny fledglings become jeweled rockets a few weeks later. I now live in Mexico and enjoy the local birds here, but my heart aches to hear the incomparably beautiful early morning song of mockingbirds…
