It is warm enough for dragonfly. Male
Snowbirds look like male Pied Flycatchers when they fly. Their tails
black and white.
I watched a bluebird battle starlings, and then, in
the bed where tomatoes will soon grow, two snow birds attempted to do what
lovers do. And this in South Central Kentucky when they should be in
the northern reaches of Canada or far to the east of us before attempting
Ominous. But if they became
residents I could no longer consider them a harbinger of winter and the
curse on them this entails.
In winter I see them on the driveway, hunting down every last seed. Frigid
cold and while there is a moment of empathy, generally all I have is a
shrug for them. Which is unjust.
