No Ordinary Crest

I was fortunate to have a Pileated Woodpecker (male) come by for a brief visit. Most of us will hear this beautiful bird long before we'll actually see it.  Mouse click here and listen to its loud and bold bird call.  Sound credit goes to: Xeno Canto http://www.xeno-canto.orga website dedicated to sharing bird sounds from all over the world.

Red Bird

Red Bird
Red bird came all winter Firing up the landscape As nothing else could.
Of course I love the sparrows, Those dun-colored darlings, So hungry and so many.
I am a God-fearing feeder of birds, I know he has many children, Not all of them bold in spirit.
Still, for whatever reason- Perhaps because the winter is so long And the sky so black-blue,
Or perhaps because the heart narrows As often as it opens- I am grateful
That red bird comes all winter Firing up the landscape
As nothing else can do.
