How's that again, Lord? Or bird?

I was planning one of my Lenten adult-ed classes in our dining room, and I heard a bird with a complex call, part of which sounded distinctly like "Scott." I tried to hear a meaning in the rest of the call, and then I seriously said, aloud, "Speak, Lord, for your servant is listening." The call didn't get any clearer, even though I tried to clear my mind and be open to what I heard, but the word "Scott" was always in there, at the end of the call. Then I said, aloud, "Speak clearly, Lord, for your servant is listening." I think the bird flew off at that point.
