There’s Always An Exception Bird

This time of year

Mostly due to migration and lack of hydration

Most of the birds disappear.

Still largely in the single and less commonly in the pair,

When I do see them they are appreciatively greeted thusly:

To the Vermillion Flycatcher its hi Vermi

To the Loggerhead Shrike it’s hi Shrikey

To the Blue Grosbeak it’s hi Grossie

To the Golden-Fronted Woodpecker it’s hi Goldie

To the Streak-Backed Oriole it’s hi Streaky

To the Groove-Billed Ani it’s hey Ani

To the Curve-Billed Thrasher it’s hi Thrashie

To the exception which aren’t exceptional who are everywhere

Do you trashy House Sparrows always have to be here!
