Saw my bird posse
on my walk–the hen’s missing–
rooster looked depressed.

Walked through my ghost town–
saw a gathering of ducks,
geese, chickens, pigeons.

A slipstream of crows
flows overhead on their way
to the roosting place.

One crow is kicking
up a fuss in the pine tree.
Maybe he’s just bored.

Morning swamp walk
brought jays, wood ducks, kingfishers,
and a merlin’s call.

Soccer, broadwing hawk,
eagle, hummingbirds, new friend–
yesterday’s highlights.

Up before the birds —
hotter-than-hades weather
demands discipline.
