January Birds

eer_0478

Cold weather in January always brings the birds to my feeder. They bring me a lot of joy as I watch them gobbling down the sunflower seeds and millet. The Red Bellied Woodpecker and Mourning Dove share the feeder together. This is nice to see since birds are often very competitive for the food. Perhaps we could learn from them how to get along.

Kim at d’Verse asked us to write a Haibun that talks about January and all it brings with it. I love my winter birds so I chose to write this one.

  1. The photograph made a strong first impression on me Dwight – nicely shot! We too have feeders and I enjoy watching the birds. How delightful to see the two species together! A lesson for all, indeed.
