The Veery

Would you like to view a Veery?

Veery much I’d be in a rush to see that thrush.

The Hooded Merganser

Fond of wooded swamps and ponds,

you can try to duck the answer.

What is a hooded merganser?

The Duck (by Ogden Nash)

Behold the duck.
It does not cluck.
A cluck it lacks.
It quacks.
It is specially fond
Of a puddle or pond.
When it dines or sups,
It bottoms ups.

The Collared Plover

Over and over again I searched to see a Collared Plover.

Finally, once I saw one I got so excited,

but immediately he flew away.

I guess I shouldn’t have hollared, and hollared and hollared.

No Birding Today

Let me explain-

Rain, rain, rain…

Drives me insane, insane, insane…

it’s such a pain, pain, pain…

So all I do is complain, complain, complain…

The Woodpecker

Peck, peck, peck, peck, peck, peck, peck, peck, peck, peck, peck, peck, peck, peck, peck. peck…

You’d think they’d just end up with a pain in the neck

but

Lo and behold,

a little round hole.

What the heck,

now they have a home in a telephone pole.

The Pelican (by Dixon Lanier Merritt)

A wonderful bird is the pelican,
His bill will hold more than his belican.
He can take in his beak
Food enough for a week,
But I’m damned if I see how the helican.

The American Kestral

The American Kestral is celestial

so for its prey

wherever they may dwell

it’s dangerously more than a pestral.

The Budgerigar

Gentle you are

A great budgie mate you are

A wonderfully perpetual chirp, chirp, chirper you are

Animated you are

Active you are

Intelligent you are

A sentient individual you are

That’s why you are

a parakeet with the name budgerigar

(in memory of Peekie 9/24/2022)
