These are birds
that get your attention.
Even people who don’t always
notice
who’s flying overhead,
perched above,
notice.
Migrating,
this flock
has been feeding
on the seeds we scatter each day,
scouring the prairie,
hanging out atop the Hackberry Trees
and evergreens
for a week now.
Their song is decidedly
unlyrical
and gets everyone’s attention:
“What are  those?”
They’re Yellow-Headed Blackbirds!!!
