The Marsh’s Edge (27 November 2017)

tall cattails in marshy ground
cattails

marsh’s edge
red-winged blackbirds celebrate
new-hatched chicks
 
clinging to his reedy stalk,
feathers fluffed, the father sings

Cold Winds (9 November 2017)

bare branches in November

 

geese and frigid winds
flow south…ragged array
their loud cries

peregrine’s swoop
grasping talons…beating wings
flickertail feathers

One-upmanship

a murder of crows gathered in the crown of the cottonwood tree
Crows in the Treetops

crows caw overhead
landing on high branches
taking off again

the loudest bird will settle
only for the highest perch
