Tweety Acrobat

‘T·see, t·see, t·see,’
With his blue cap and
Proud yellow chest,
On his back a
Bright green vest,
Upside down on
Round bird feeder
– Acrobatic little tweeter –
Parus caeruleus,
Twelve eggs (and more) per brood.
Itty-bitty caterpillars,
Staple food.

  7. Polly, this made me grin ear to ear, honestly. At first (OK, I know I need my meds), I was literally thinking, “Who on earth would dress a bird up in clothing?” Took a second to reorient to Planet Earth and realize that, in birding, sometimes and cap is… just a cap! Very sweet stuff, charming. Amy
