2:30p.m. - 1:30 a.m.:
Birds on air; rocks and trees,
A ninety-degree breeze aimed to please.
An oriole made a bright orange flash,
Osprey ate their fishy catch,
5 vultures from the cliff,
Met briefly for a sniff (?)
Redtails posed later in the day,
Didn't see many birds just out to play
Cle Elum Bakery was closed.
I made do with some Cheetos,
3 Falcons of the Prairie didn't let a hawk tarry
In their MP4 nest area
Nighthawks didn't show
Mosquitos did, though
Canyon Wrenlets practiced liquid notes
Some folks sped by on rubber floats
Crickets drowned out the birds,
Canyon Rd. vehicles were worse.
Many old favorites did I miss
Like the Barn Owls and their hiss.
But there still was bliss when the moon my eyes did kiss !
Sitting in my chair,
I was glad I was there !
