What do you do when an owl is scowling at you?

Cover its eyes with a towel.

Cuckoos

If you’re cuckoo about cuckoos

whether they’re lesser or greater

you’ll think roadrunners

are real stunners

The Blue Jay

The gorgeous active aggressive noisy Blue Jay

by people is either loved or hated

but this ultra intelligent bird doesn’t care

as long as its fate isn’t to be ated.

The Jabiru

If you are its aquatic prey

from the Jabiru you’d do best to stay away

or this prehistoric-looking huge stork

with lots of torque in its massive bill

will jabiru you through and through

until it has had its daily fill.

His bill can 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

Vultures

Be they black, turkey, or king

I have a hard time empathizing with any vulture

as I can’t relate to their dining culture

since eating carrion is just not my thing.

Binoculars Are in the Eyes of the Beholder

Some people pay well over $2000 for binoculars

because they know they are really fineoculars

but mine are not particularly expensive

and if they are falling apart I just tie them together

so I end up with some cheap twineoculars

but when I slipped and fell into a pig sty

they instantly converted into not fit to be tied swineoculars.

Auks

If auks could talk

the consensus of the flock would be

“please don’t gawk at us.”

The Ringed Kingfisher

There is no water in the now dry pond.

Thus no birds appear there whom I have grown fond.

So if a had just one wisher

it would be the arrival of a ringed kingfisher

as it would really be unrealistic to wisher for an otter.
