2013 and beyond

It's pretty simple: the most birds seen or heard from one's yard during 2013 will be the "winner". Want in? O.k....then do it despite that.

2013 promises to be a lot less mean but still a carbon-free birding competition, even if slightly less exciting than a MEGA x EPIC hybrid.

Falcon Rest

With my back to the ground
And my eyes to the sky
Through the blueness
A falcon speeds by.

Black helmet on head
White throat and breast
Sharp wings saber talons
Feathered food in quest.

Upper slate-gray
Darkly barred rear
Bigger than Merlin
Smaller than Gyr.

Eighty-eight this annum
For the yard it is
Another forever also
To add to the list.

Content with the sighting
And warm grass below
My lids are heavy
Under the sun's warm glow.
