Blackbird Sing A Little Song For Me
A hummingbird flew past sharing the latest buzz. I walked carefully trying to get close to a blackbird nest, but the mother had other ideas. She moved around trying to get me to follow clear away from her children. They lay their nest on the ground in good cover, so it is always hard to find. New growth also hides the thorns of blackberries and roses, making tiny scratches everywhere. I looked until I felt I would never find it. She had foiled my attempt thoroughly, so I apologized and looked for a good route to get out to my car. Soon she was back singing where I had first noticed her.
