|FROGGY GOES A COURTIN'|
|...STRUMMIN' ON HIS OLD BANJO|
|WHILE A RED-WINGED BLACKBIRD PROCLAIMS HIS TERRITORY|
The rivers and marshes are all at their high water mark, the marsh at the beach is no exception, and it is filled with red-winged blackbirds proclaiming their nesting territory and bullfrogs proclaiming theirs, both sounds otherwise not much heard there. I communicated with a quite vociferous frog for some time, but he stayed hidden in the reeds and I never saw him.
Life at the beach is good this year, and everyone's goin' a courtin'.
