We don’t use our front door often, so today when I opened the front door to go out and get the mail, I was surprised to hear birds chirping quite closely. I looked up, and sure enough, some birdie made a home above our lantern, and that little humble abode now has four little birds in it.
I have no idea what species they are, but they are too cute!
They brought to mind one of the counting rhymes I learned a LONG time ago…
Five Little Blue Birds
Five little blue birds, hopping by my door
One went to build a nest, and then there were four
Four little blue birds singing lustily
One got out of tune, and then there were three
Three little blue birds, and what should one do,
But go in search of dinner, leaving only two.
Two little blue birds singing for fun
One flew away, and then there was one.
One little blue bird sitting in the sun
He took a little nap, and then there was none.
Of course, these little guys are blue birds, but they sure sing lustily!
Do you know what species they are?
