Monday Mystery Answered

On Monday, John Pastore asked:

Can you identify this trio? Do they remind you of a song? By whom?

Icram Khalil got the first part right: Golden-crowned Kinglet, Tree Sparrow, and Winter Wren.

But Do they remind you of a song? By whom?

(Thanks, Icram!)

John Pastore answered the second part himself, writing:

Not sure which song you were looking for, Jim, but this would be my vote:

'Three Little Birds,' by Bob Marley and the Wailers.
Rise up this mornin',
Smiled with the risin' sun,
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin' sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true,
Sayin', ("This is my message to you-ou-ou:")
