As the sun set slowly in the west,
I went out onto the back deck to listen.
If you have birds around your home,
try to listen to their calls as the sun rises or sets.

Blackbirds were whistling beautifully (listen towards the end of this sound file), with the occasional clattering cluk, cluk, cluk alarm noise (unfortunately, that call is at the start of the attached sound file - which gives totally the wrong impression of their beautiful whistling call).
