A herald of spring

This morning it's gloomy and sometimes we had sprinkle, though I walked to the office for the first time after months. It's about 30 minutes walk from my house to the office, through mostly residential area. When I walked along a small park I heard the singing of bush warbler. Its song was so beautiful that I've felt good while I was walking. Japanese bush warbler, Uguisu in Japanese, is often considered as the herald of spring, and its song is obviously the most loved bird's song here. They must have sung since (maybe) the end of February but unfortunately in my neighbourhood it's rather rare to hear their song in the last 10 years, it was my first Uguisu's song this spring. I'm glad to know they still live with us around here :)
