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!
