Little Green Bird

.
.
A small Green Bird
Lives on this mountain,
Flitting about,
From pine tree to bush.
.
With one bright eye,
Then the other,
Little Green Bird
Carefully studied me.
.
It is you, little Green Bird,
With your lovely plumes,
And friendly glance,
Who are the rare encounter.
.
Why did you linger,
Coming closer when I laughed?
Such a funny little bird,
You tiny warbling green beauty.

The little fellow I saw was a definite green, a pine green,  greener than the guide illustrations.   Not only did he have a personality, he had a sense of humor.

Songs and Calls

Musical and somewhat melancholy, a soft, sweet version of the trill of the Chipping Sparrow.
