Much can be said about Nancy's birds;
One thing is for sure birds love to visit her cottage by the sea,
Because they know they are invited, welcomed guests,
Who partake of the many water bowls and feeders full of tasty seeds.
An aloof Stellar Jay presides from a high perch on the upper branches.
He sweeps down on the wrens, chickadees, sparrows every so often,
To restore order amongst them.
An occasional Rufous Sided Towhee flies in for a quick meal and the,
Hummingbirds always find an open perch to sip from the red feeders,
Full of sweet nectar lovingly concocted by their host.
Nancy leaves no creature unattended, as evidenced by,
The gray squirrels who noisily chatter whilst gathering peanuts,
(Scattered on the back porch) , to supplement their acorn hoard high aloft.
Yes life is good at Nancy's woodlot cottage, near Nehalem Bay.
