Michelle, it appears that this was your first premier win. A worthy haiku, indeed. I happily discovered through the magic of google what a beautiful red and black bird this little tanager is, and was pleased to listen to its sweet song you poetically referenced. Belated congratulations on this significant win, and thank you for teaching me something about the avian kingdom ~ John

Truthfully I googled 'songbirds' to find a type of bird to write about and that's how I found the Scarlet Tanager! Google is so useful!

Well done, Michelle. I'd not heard of this bird before and was compelled to research this 'flame of spring'. I must admit, having heard the accompanying audio clip, I prefer to dwell on its beautiful appearance!
