104 Degrees

That’s the prediction for today.

That’w what must be driving the Painted Buntings

Into town.

Heat.

And drought.

The last bird to take a drink last night

Was a Painted Bunting.

The first bird to take a drink this morning

Was a Painted Bunting.

They rarely hang around town.

Usually you see them at the river

Or thereabouts.

Their kaleidoscopic beauty stops me in my tracks

Every time.

So striking.

So surprising.

So grateful to have them in my yard.

Better top off the birdbath!
