[Amy] Watching

am I watching you

maybe you are watching me

just stay very still

[Ian] Nest

the bird is long gone

but her home is still intact

ready for next year?

[Ian] Key West Street Scene

looking for a meal

bird wades through manicured grass

It’s his habitat

[Ian] Mine


gull sits on stone nest
marks his territory with noise
to attract a mate

[Ian] Pigeon Statues


grey and still like stone

pigeons on ornate perches

trying to blend in

[Ian] Window Man


perched on window ledge

the man who knew he could fly

summoning courage




[Ian] Nest


waterfront condo

original wood flooring

open plan living


[Ian] Spoonbill


this bird grew a spoon

searched until it found the sea

thought it found fish soup

[Ian] Abundant


abundance of spring
after a hungry winter
birds find easy food

[This week’s theme was Spring]

[Ian] Takeoff


bufflehead takes off
black and white with yellow eye
swift beauty in flight
