Distinguishing among them, an aurora; looking at it through binoculars at days end – a different planet. Areola, behind and in front and then behind again, unintelligible to the nearby human. Areola, a hole, a constant. There’s enough information in [the sound] that, in theory, they could tell each other apart. Like the other day, a blue jay flew into my house looking for food... and then forgot how to get out. It caused a terrifying ruckus flapping around and banging its head into the glass, trying to escape. I grabbed a towel, threw it over the bird, then brought it back outside again.
