Seeing Red

 The wild things are not always wild.
Sometimes they seem quite tame.
They come each day to get some feed
and stay to play a game.
With patience Mr. Redbird waits
beneath the feeding tray
until Woody eats his breakfast
and quickly flies away.

    Amazing collection of birds–you couldn’t have posed them better on purpose!

    Four cardinals and a woodpecker! How beautiful.


    • That was a lucky day! Haven’t seen it before or since, although they both still come to feed. Just don’t see that many and especially not with the “fraidy bird” beneath the feed tray. 🙂


  3. Beautiful photo, Freeda! I see a lot of cardinals but never get photos like that. Sweet poem.


  4. Lovely poem and a gorgeous photo. Check out my FB page. I shared a video of the most gorgeous mandarin ducks in the water.


  5. Cute verse! Love your all your red feathered friends.
