For the Birds

As promised here is a little playlist to accompany the lovely birdsong that is bringing spring on the wind.  Spring is taking its time with us this year, teasing us with some sunshine here and there but bringing rains and winds that stir the juices regardless.  I hope this means a long and hot summer to come.

Cicadas & Gulls - Feist
Big Bird in a Small Cage - Patrick Watson
Sweet Bird - Joni Mitchell
Norwegian Wood (This Bird has Flown) - The Beatles
Given to Fly - Pearl Jam
Black Crow - Joni Mitchell
Emperor Penguin - The Tragically Hip
Flightless Bird, American Mouth - Iron & Wine
The Birds on the Bridge - The Deep Dark Woods
Blackbird - The Beatles
Bird Guhl - Antony & the Johnsons
Song to a Seagull - Joni Mitchell
Three Little Birds - Bob Marley
And Your Bird Can Sing - The Beatles
The Littlest Birds - The Be Good Tanyas

You may have noticed several Joni songs, she sings about birds a lot.  As do The Beatles but you can't deny the classics.  Feel free to add your favorites in the comments and get out and enjoy the birds.  I plan on doing a bit more to honour them this spring, I'll be back with more on that soon.

we like Little bird by Elizabeth mitchell. She's got such a sweet voice and the kids in the recording are sweet.
