in the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth
day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up and the windows of heaven were opened......Genesis 7: 11

A white- breasted nuthatch
Flew upon the window sill
Carrying seeds in his bill
For a future snack...

A trademark of its name,
This nuthatch was to hack
And stack his food into a crack,
Of an old wooden frame..

Poetry by me AJP


Sometimes it pays to look up as I caught this nuthatch climbing on our upstairs window...I have a feeling he has a stash of sunflowers seeds wedged into a crevice of the window frame for future storage when it gets cold this winter.

Birds certainly look ahead to the future and prepare for it such as Noah in Bible times did during the flood when he built an ark.
