The Bird Weekly Photo Challenge: Birds in Black and White

I thought I had already contributed to Lisa’s photo challenge and looking through my posts I can see that I have written quite a number of posts with a similar theme. I will have to dig into the archives for this one so sorry if you have seen some of these before

Here’s a short song that I discovered many many years ago. I hope you can enjoy it as much as I do.

Negotiations at the bird bath

The Daily Word Prompt from Sheryl: Negotiation

Quite often
they come
you see
to splash
or drink
or just be.
Some find
a reason
some go
the bird bath
boss sometimes
a Spangled Drongo.
Sitting waiting
a dip
now and then
a Spangled Drongo
negotiation skills
says who when.
They look
they wonder
some stay
in they go
to splash
and play.
But only
if allowed
by a Spangled Drongo
who lets
them bathe
then off you go.
Please may I have a bath implored the Little Wattlebirdspangled drongo_wattlebird_bird bath_named_binna burra_march 2016
