November 2010

A sharp wind tears the last leaves from the trees. A bold, proud, cackling Blue Jay perches on top of the feeder. The smaller birds, the starlings and sparrows, the yellow finch and the cardinal, scatter. There’s suet and seed enough for everyone but even nature has bullies, bruisers who don’t care who’s cold or hungry. The Blue Jay is handsome, almost regal, but I prefer the sparrow.
