January Birds — Roth Poetry

Cold weather in January always brings the birds to my feeder. They bring me a lot of joy as I watch them gobbling down the sunflower seeds and millet. The Red Bellied Woodpecker and Mourning Dove share the feeder together. This is nice to see since birds are often very competitive for the food. Perhaps we could learn from them how to get along.

Kim at d’Verse asked us to write a Haibun that talks about January and all it brings with it. I love my winter birds so I chose to write this one.

I saw this juvenile Bald Eagle circling for a long time over Haney Creek in Stuart yesterday morning.

Eagle wingspan: 6 to 7.5 feet!

It’s not unusual to see an eagle in this Stuart and Jensen Beach area north of the St. Lucie River, but I think this is the first juvenile I’ve spotted.

According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission…

The bald eagle, our national bird and a symbol of the United States, is a conservation success story. Today, Florida, has one of the densest concentrations of nesting bald eagles in the lower 48 states. While no longer listed under the U.S. Endangered Species Act or the Florida Endangered and Threatened Species rules, bald eagles remain protected by both the state eagle rule (68A-16.002, F.A.C.) and federal law.

Florida has an Eagle Watch program coordinated through Florida Audubon.

Secret Fantasy — Source of Inspiration

I have this secret fantasy that sneaks up on me at the most unexpected times. I would not dare act out this forbidden dream, not because of any virtue of mine, but rather because I expect the fantasy is better than the reality.

Many thanks to Bird rights: Poem — stumble upon serendipity for sharing this beautiful picture and poem.

The gift of another day I take flight Zip through the dawn chorus my friends Robin and Sparrow greet me with innate tunes Clouds hover over early umbrellas to shield me from the sun’s elation I wink at the winds that carry my wings Greet sunbeams in my way with a cheeky whistle I […]

Rosy-faced Lovebird

Many people find it strange that I love my hometown of Windhoek so much. They say it is dry and drab, but I see it completely differently. It sits at 1700 metres above sea level (12th highest capital in the world) in the Khomas Highland plateau area between the Auas and Eros mountain ranges. It […]

I’m pretty sure this is a Yellow Throat, but this is the first time I have photographed one. A very pretty bird.

Showing His Moves, Great Blue Heron - click to enlarge

These 4 photographs were taken while a juvenile Heron was testing flight skills. A second bird looks on and seems very interested. There are actually 3 young birds in this particular nest. The third was flying around overhead. At this point it was getting funny watching the bird dance around flapping, with a rapt audience. […]
