A Poem For My Friend Angel.....'bout Birds....[Nature observations; Personal]


I enjoy seeing birds at our backyard feeder,
And, from bushes and trees, hearing some birds that 'tweeeeeter'.

Tiny black seeds attract finches, which have the name ‘gold'....
Who flee from grey juncos which are larger and bold.

Flitting chickadees and 'tufted' titmice, from feeder, eat seed,
While, on the ground, sparrows, towhees, and doves often feed.
They scatter when a blue and white scrub jay flies by,
Or when, overhead, a prowling hawk they do spy.

Waxwings and robins come to pick some nearby berries.
'sorry birdies, ....we have neither grapes nor red cherries.'

Ravens, vultures, and gulls pass high in the air, while
Bushtits and 'hummers' come closer to my chair.

I don't see all these birds every week, but.....i've seen more,
And some non-feathered friends pause, not far from our door.
And when around me i see no animal creatures.....
I enjoy all the plants....that our landscape features.

    Some birds are a joy to watch and bring great happiness to many. Others are considered pests. I always wanted to be an Owl when I was younger, but that's only because I wanted to be cute and wise. (Report) Reply

    An eye that likes to see all will certainly see such birds too. A fine tribute to your pal Angel. (Report) Reply

    A good attempt, keep it up. Birds come in my palace
    garden not to eat but just to take a look at me.
    I'm so fantastic even animals love me and want
    to be me.

    Your King. (Report) Reply
