Baby Blackbird

She lives in my garden tree, and bathes in the birdbath, a part of our little family of birds in the garden.

She sat for a long time looking in and watching me.  What a lively little visit we had.

She sat for a long time looking in and watching me. What a lovely little visit we had.  We have a couple of families of birds living in our garden.  It is such a joy!  

 

Baby blackbird
At my window
Looking in at me
Her home a nest
Nicely hidden
In my garden tree

I watch her sitting
At my window
While she watches me
In my curious nest,
Then unbidden
She flies back to her tree

I feel so privileged that she lives happily here with me.
