"Whistle and Dance"

...or let the birds do it for you!  If you're having a hard day, let these "angels with wings" lift your spirits! I was inspired by a particular songbird that was singing at 3am in my yard yesterday.

                                         3am - a Spring visitor in my front yard 

I've never been able to whistle, and I don't rap...but not to worry.  Be refreshed with awe and laughter as you watch these birds cut up!

                              Cockatiel sings Theme from Chocobo                                     
                        Snowball (Dancing Cockatoo)  this one will crack you up!

                                   Dan Fogelberg (1970) sings "To The Morning"
 He was a pianist who sang ballads that  I enjoyed during my highschool years.  He died in 2007 of cancer, but he left a beautiful legacy for us to enjoy.  This particular video is accompanied by a wonderful photo montage throughout.

"Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the earth; make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise." - Psalm 98:4

Somehow, I believe when this says 'all the earth', that includes cockatiels & cockatoos, too! Nature can sing when we can't, and oh, how they help us out!


  1. What an awesome post Rann! Mommy and I loved it...all the videos, and your sweet words. We love that scripture too. God said make a joyful don't have to sound perfect! Mommy and I definitely love making joyful noises everyday.

  4. Hi there!

    Thanks for stopping by! I started this blog as a means for me to help balance the "heavy" voice of cancer, with the fast & furious tempo of Twitter!

    I'm so glad you have found it inspirational too!

    The scripture references-well, they are like the air I breathe...I guess maybe I have just found inspiration for my next video-Michael W. Smith's "You are The Air I Breathe)!
