Poems by the birds outside my window

This morning (well it’s now early afternoon), there are some birds outside my window and they are chirping very rhythmically, with very specific counts to each string of tweets. After a string of chirps, one pauses for a length of time, equal to the time it just chirped, more or less. Then it chirps again to the same count of six or so chirps. After lots of chirping, one bird takes a break and another begins to chirp. Or they could all be from one bird, I am not sure. But I will assume that these are from separate birds, since both kinds of chirps sound different. Some chirps are seven counts, some are five, most happen to be six. The six count is repeated so much that it’s obvious. It makes the five and seven counts then jump out as obvious, too. I think it’s fascinating that there is a rhythm to the way they are speaking, singing, chirping, tweeting. So I thought I’d write down the bird’s chirps, so they can be visualized as a poem.
