Avian numerosity

Our house was surrounded by numerous noisy birds this morning. There was a lot of chirping. I was trying to figure out if I was grumpy enough to want to load a streetsweeper with bird shot or awake enough to enjoy the sounds of “spring,” the name of this season that has had a cold start. I think the chirping conversation was something like:

“Hey, Fred! Aren't you cold?”

“Yeah, Bob. I'm freezing my tail off!”

“Well, I checked my calendar before I came, and I know it's spring. Blast it, I'm going to enjoy myself anyway!”

“Chirp on, brother!”
