Oh Mister Bluebird
The Killdeer fluttered and chattered down the trail, announcing his arrival on the trail. It was a windy day and all the flowers introduced themselves as he passed.A tiny bluebird house was just ahead and he stood watching to see if a bill of one of the parents might show out the hole in front. He waited for a moment and walked cautiously toward the home. Taking out the nail that held the front door he carefully opened it to find a new clutch of eggs. He smiled seeing a second set of eggs in this old house. Walking across the prairie he went to the next house and found some tiny birds hungry and eager to be fed. He shut it quickly when the father swooped in and walked off to the side hoping to get a good photo of him, but his presence kept him away.He hoped to return and see the parents again, sighting a beautiful bloom across the plain.What a wonderful day to enjoy out on the prairie.
