We visited the Ninth Street Rookery yesterday and viewed a variety of beautiful birds nesting in the Eucalyptus trees. . .amazing experience. I took some photos and wrote a poem. A telephoto lens would have been helpful, so I will put it on my wish list.
A flash of white feathers
Soaring toward the Eucalyptus branches
Hoping for a soft landing
A cacophony of avian voices
Dissonant chords, permeating the air
Cries of esurient nesting chicks abound
