My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.” ~George Eliot Le Merle Noir, illustration by Leo Paul Robert from ‘Les Oiseaux dans la Nature,’ by Eugene Rambert.

Blackbird. We've had a few pet blackbirds. Tallulabel and Jeffrey were the first.

We never tire from listening to the song of the Blackbird, morning or night.
