Bird haiku


Tree dripping crimson
Cardinals
Stately, beautiful



Grackles clot the sky
They chatter
Creaky garden gates

I like this! Geat pictures and poetry! We don't have cardinals here so we really think they're special.

OMG! I am green with envy! The cardinals in the beech tree. Jealous, jealous, jealous.

What a beautiful post! I wish I could see both Cardinals and Grackles some day. Your photos are awesome and make me green with envy too :)

The perfect way to start my day! A hot cup of coffee, your beautiful pictures, and your lovely verse. Check out all the male cardinals! What a super picture, karen

So clever you write
with words
black and white put forth

But more with camera
Red, Black
your wit through photos

I am amazed at all the cardinals!! I don't think I have ever seen more than a couple at a time, and here, you hundreds! Okay, half a dozen!!!

I'm amazed by all the cardinals too! As a western birder I was thrilled to see two or three in western New York earlier this month. I can only imagine trees dripping with crimson as you've so beautifully captured!

OMG!! LOOK AT ALL THE CARDINALS!
Sorry for yelling, but that's what I would be doing at my house if I saw that out my window. So Beautiful!!
