I think I can guess what the birds are saying to each other here!!! And it's not repeatable!
I had to turn around and come home on the way to work this morning because of this rain!
Great shot by the way!

"Coo, ain't it wet" A wonderful image, Barbara. Perfect timing to get them looking at each other. The composition and mono is perfect.

We had the rain all day Sunday and most of Monday!! Cool and sunny now.
