Does anyone recognize this bird? (This was a quick shot through a screened window. Sorry about the quality.) Six of them showed up on our property about a week ago. In the mornings I see them emerge from our honeysuckle growth and head straight for our lavender bushes—where they dig right into the flower areas.
Anyway, we’re happy to have the new neighbors… and hope they’ll stay.
Morning opens her eyes, kisses the cold cheeks of sleeping bouquets, who yawn and stretch their emerald petals and shower prismatic pollen upon granitic angels, their morning breakfast of sharing last night’s dreams, until the first knee genuflects before them and asks forgiveness
