Backyard Entertainers

A yellow finch chirps a sweet melody
As black-capped chickadees steal the show
A blue jay circles in the air for food

Robins in the grass finding worms for food
As a red cardinal sings his loud mating melody
I watch out the window enjoying the show

Two hummingbirds at the feeder, putting on a show
Fighting until they stop to perch while sipping liquid food
Crows appear, cackling and squawking their own melody

I enjoy hearing the melody of birds while watching them put on a show searching for food.

Great to see your poem on birds, Tania. I watched a show like this at my inlaws, when they lived in Kentucky. It truly is quite the show. Congrats on your win.

Sounds like my backyard - add some squirrels and doves. Wish I could keep bees out of the hummingbird feeder. Love the way you wrote this.
