SQUAWK, chirp, an explosion of sound,
cascade of blue feathers, Fountain,
three Blue Jays flew UP, and “ran away“,
left the premises, Got out of Dodge. Hissing — the remaining — slight gray Mockingbird
flew to the top of the of the lamp post.
His long tail feathers were twitching,
[waving his flag]
Red-Winged Blackbirds, Starlings, Grackles; they’re all A response [cluster] migratory call. Blackbirds “meet-up” in the grass, foraging; Methodical search for gourmet eating. Shadowy flicker, a blackbird’s descent– Do all birds possess inherent good sense? The Blackbirds mingling in the wet grass, Hear the silent command, RISE UP – en masse. Blackbirds congregated in the same tree Will strike up the band; it’s a singing spree!
The Cardinal perched, a respite from flight — Deep red blood – the bird to sing — heart’s delight. Talented Linguist is the Mockingbird; Melodic mimic, it’s celestial — WORD. Flapping [feathers] a honk and a thud — Two Canada Geese walking in the mud. Live Wire revitalized, the Mockingbird, Feathers ruffled by the wind… how absurd. Long neck undulating – up, down, the nod, Part of a Canada goose strange ballade.
Perched on the precipice, telephone pole — The huge black Crow cawed, to connect his goal. When a Crow’s calling, he thrusts his head out, Extends his neck, feathers a visual “shout”. His whole body’s involved in this cawing, Beak slightly open — this bird’s vibrating. I think he’s lonely, looking for kinfolk; Take a chance, roll that dice, go for broke. When birds are talking they give it their ALL. I’m running down the Hall; will I trip and fall?
