Very early every morning and without fail he will be there, atop the roof of either my house or my next-door neighbour's, singing melodiously for two to three minutes.

"Hi Mr Magpie Robin, what is is it that you're trying to tell us? Hope that you're telling us some good news!" there goes my wife the minute she hears him singing.

I'm not sure whether the bird is trying to tell us something, but it for sure is a very good alarm clock!

At least it awakens us early so that we could be ready for dawn prayers.

At least it tells us to wake up and get ready for the challenges of the new day.

At least it reminds us that there is more to life than sleeping.

Thank you and Good Morning Mr Magpie Robin!
