I Watch The Squirrels Fight

I Watch The Squirrels Fight~ Photos by Patrice

I watch the squirrels fight 
edging out one another 
for a place at the feeder 
just another bite. 

there’s a truce 

a bitter fight 

a lone squirrel 
til he feels suffice. 

Birds keep their distance 
stay out of the fight 
they wait their turn 
a time when
all others have had their fill 

All’s quiet 

No more anger 

No more strife.

Just What Kind?

Just what kind of birds do you get at your feeder?
Mine seem a little different.

Some Birds Are Strange To Me

March 20, 2013

Some birds are strange to me
The ones at the feeder I see
Nose, two ears and four feet
Beneath of thee.

Whatever ever type of bird could they be?

Doe at Feeder ~ photo by PatriceA deer?
A deer you say
Stealing seed
Right in front of me!

But the way they fly
Over fence and hill
They must have gained
A little ‘Bird’
In their birdseed fill.

I will watch until the spring
When the feeder is no longer
Filled with magic seeds
That make a doe
Into this strange bird
I see flying over fence and hill.
