Chipping Sparrow


“Hey, Charlie! Come over here. I think I’ve found some bugs.”


“Yeah? Where?”

“Well … they were here a second ago.”


“Oh! Wait! I think I see him.”


“This is taking way too long. If you don’t mind, I think I’ll go looking for my own again.”


Charlie and Cherry were cruising the patch,

Hoping to find bugs to go down the hatch,

Cherry was choosy and took far too long,

Charlie flew off and instead sang a song.


Cherry, I love you, but as for my dinner,

Waiting for you is just making me thinner,

I’ll find my own meals and you’re doing fine,

You find your own bugs and I will find mine.

  7. They’re common, but sure are pretty birds. At least to me. So cool to get such closeup pics.

  8. They better spend more time eating them! I’ve heard birds need to eat all the time! (like me)


  9. How have we missed each other’s blogs lately?! I love your animal/bird stories, as you know. I don’t usually do this, but here’s my post from two Fridays ago. I bet you’d come up with a better name than Miss Muffett! https://roughwighting.net/2022/05/06/the-rewards-of-a-simple-life/


  10. Beautiful shots, Anneli.


    • Thank you, Jill. They are friendly birds in the same way that chickadees are, so they didn’t fly away as soon as they saw me with the camera. I think they liked getting their picture taken.
