One of our kids favorite things to do when driving in the car is to listen to the CD which has birds of Wisconsin and some of their songs. Some of the birds have little phrases that they use to help you remember and identify their song. Last week when we were outside, Fischer said he heard a bird singing "Drink your tea." My ears missed it. I had to listen to the CD to find out which bird it was. It turns out it was an Eastern Towhee. I've never seen one before, but they look very similar to a robin. They return to Wisconsin in the spring. This was my inspiration for this piece, just perfect for The Three Muses challenge this week. I love birds and I love tea, what a perfect combo.
