birdwatching

The Black Phoebe

Typically seen on a low perch near ponds, lakes, streams, creeks, or rivers,

spying for its next meal

this flycatcher known as a Black Phoebe

not only must give the nearby insects the quivers

but also the heebie-jeebies.

The Resplendant Quetzal

It doesn’t seem fair

but rather foul

that the Resplendant Quetzal

who may be the loveliest bird of all

rhymes with mescal and pretzel.

Doves

Sure I’m being superficial

but be they Inca, Mourning, White-Winged, or Ruddy Ground,

I have found

it’s hard to be lovey-dovey

about unlovely doveys.

Great-Tailed Grackles

The noise of the Great-Tailed Grackles

My nerves they do wrackles.

The Curve-Billed Thrasher

Orange-eyed

interestingly

perched high

on a cactus

If you were to ask us

as for that Curve-Billed Thrasher

we’d never trash her.

The Barn Swallow

What would you like to do with this barn swallow?

I don’t mean to be darn shallow,

but definitely not swallow.

The Eagle

A eagle is regal

but not so a beagle.

The Cactus Wren

These wrens feast while on a cactus

yet if you ask them why

They’ll say

You bug us

so don’t ask us.

Antbirds

Unless they’re following army ant swarms

and devouring different little life forms

for a birder to see them

they pretty much become can’tbirds

Flycatchers

Belonging to the largest bird family worldwide

I don’t mean to be snide

but why is it that most flycatchers aren’t eyecatchers?
