Red squirrel defends domain;
On offense now, a chase ensues.
It can’t be that bad --
Woodpeckers go about their day,
knocking all the way.
Crow butts in, causing chaotic scattering.
Turkey vulture circles,
joined by a kettle looking to kill.
Here, life goes on.
Robin announces it’s Spring.
Dark eyed and grey Juncos peeping in the shadows of the earth.
Squirrels galore, gathering and
Cardinal love is in the air;
Red croons to his love.
She, joins him — a fine pair!
Mourning dove laments — We can
never be who we were before.
Doggy days indeed.
And still --
