It’s quite a bird day
here in the city!
Walking at Lake Hefner
this morning,
we watched a Great White Egret
fish,
Mallards swim.

I happened to look up
and saw a large bird approaching
in the western sky.
I couldn’t identify it…
wasn’t a Turkey Vulture,
wasn’t a hawk, and then,
as it reached us,
not far overhead,
the sunlight set its white
head feathers aglow:
it was a Bald Eagle!
A young one,
smallish, but old enough
to have grown its white feathers.
We were astonished
and in awe.

Back on 32nd Street,
two Chickadees
at the bird feeders—
the first.
