good morning



a scratch, then tip-tap by the bedroom window
pair of chickadees settles on my red tiled roof
soft as pitter-patter of rain on summer day
then the curious bird, perches just outside my frame
a few seconds, our eyes meet & he flies away
gifting me with bubbling smile to start my day

  1. Wonderful, Grace! I’ve heard of chickadees but we don’t get them here. What a delightful early morning visitor!

  2. They are pretty little birds, and so busy. The Great Tits have raised two sets of chicks this year under the eaves of the house and we'll have them all winter at the feeder.

  9. They are such sweet little birds. The come to my sunflower feeder and get a seed and take it to the limb to eat, never at the feeder! Well Done!

  15. Oh that is a great way to start the day. I just wrote a whole comment to you but it disappeared faster than I could see what happened. Anyhow, I have a red-bellied woodpecker who is making holes in the eaves of my roof. I know that probably means a bigger problem but I don't need an alarm clock. It sounds like a jackhammer!
