He hath put a new song in my mouth. Psalm 40: 2

The Nashville warbler is not afraid
To sing her joyful serenade...
"seeba seeba teteteteteteteteteteeh"
As she snacks on her apple jelly...
The squirrels wish is to fill its belly
And was not a bit thrilled at all
When the tiny bird trilled her call,
To hit the sharp note ...TSICK!!!
She shrilled it loud and clear
Her favorite song to pick...
For the ear who wouldn't hear!!!

Poetry by me AJP

The little warblers are so expressive and I hope they stick around awhile before they continue migrating..It still is cold here and they normally eat the bugs off from the blossoming trees but everything is late this year...therefore they are coming to the feeders to eat..This has been the spring of the warblers..

Thank you so much Nadeem Shafi for the thoughtful spotlight on 05-17-2014
