Wren’s Song

Scruffy Wren

Last summer we had a nest of baby wrens that hatched nearby. The little ones would come to the feeder and shimmy and shake expecting the mother to pick up the food and feed them. As their feathers were coming in, they looked a little disheveled! They did not look very happy and their songs where begging tunes! Once grown, they joined their parents in that high pitched song that makes you wonder how that much sound could come from such a little bird.

Hatchling begs for food

Feathers unkempt all awry

Not a joyful sound

Today at d’Verse, Frank Tassone asked us to write a Haibun that refers to bird songs. We enjoy watching the birds at our feeder as they come and go. The little wren gets so loud at times we have to shut the door!
