Beautiful birds are one of God’s best creations. They come in all size, shapes, and colors. I love watching them compete for the never ending food supply. The squirrels bully their way into the mix, gobbling up all they can eat till I think they will pop! Sometimes they get so full they just lay down in the food. The birds back off and wait till he is finished.  Then they too eat their fill.

Dancing for joy on my deck rail

Gobbling down seeds with your sharp black bill

Towhee chasing all others away

The seeds on the rail have made your day

Beautiful bird in your fine black tux

Orange shirt to match just for luck

Tail in the air strutting your stuff

Exuding  confidence under all that fluff

Eat till your full leave the rest for your friends

Red Bellied Woodpeckers Cardinals and Wrens

They all eat knowing there’s more to come

My welfare birds will all eat as one!
