Flock of chickadees
flit through the soft green pine boughs
flashing their birdness.

A Jay lands near the
dryer vent and stands there to
take in the moist air.

Young merlin hanging
out in the swamp this morning.
Made food begging calls.

On my morning walk,
an egret lifts off as a
lone rower goes by

dove when he does work.

Parakeet burbles —
senses change in the weather?
Just a happy bird?

Chickadee sat perched
on the porch chair back and looked
at me through the door.

Burbling parakeet
makes working much easier.
It’s a happy sound.
