Hour 7 – The Season of the Starlings

The Season of the Starlings

Here they come
with purple heads and yellow eyes
flocking and cawing
to empty the feeder

Loud, raucous, pushy birds
they scatter the seeds
leaving no space
for nuthatches and sparrows

I have no love for these invaders
until I see
Father feeding Youngster
great gobs of suet into waiting beaks
a nurturing parent
