Focus. Forage. Focus. Forage. For Both Seeds and those Health Care Law’s Benefits and Platform Fixes. And Do It at Warp, or at least, Junco Speed.* Plus: watch out for those Sharp-Shinned Hawks of both the Human and Raptor Kind. (Another 420 Character, 9-Line Poem by Patty)

(Can you believe it? There’s a new documentary that helps make my point–the part about the Junco, not the Affordable Health Care.)

I don’t want to miss anything,

sort of like what I imagine is the gist of the Dark-eyed Junco‘s high chip notes

he mutters while foraging or flying low for cover

from the Sharp-shinned Hawk.

Like me, he’s a creature of the ground,

hopping around the bases of trees and shrubs or even out onto the lawn.

Check. Seek. Double-check.

Take a note from this bird, ye fixers of the Health Care Platforms.

Don’t miss anything.

I HOPE IT ISN’T MID-WINTER BEFORE THE PLATFORM’S FIXED, BUT IF IT IS, THERE WILL BE OTHER FORAGERS.

One thought on “Focus. Forage. Focus. Forage. (WATCH OUT FOR THE HAWKS, THOUGH) But, Yes, By All Means, Forage For Both Seeds and Those Health Care Law Benefits and Platform Fixes. And Do It at Warp, or at least, Junco Speed. (Another 420 Character, 9-Line Poem by Patty)

  1. I’ve been watching the juncos in their little black(ish) and white feathered outfits… They remind me so much of the Dominican monks of long ago who also dressed in black capes and white robes. I wonder if the monks still wear those old time robes.
    Thank you to the delightful avian visitors in my backyard and thank you to Patty for writing about them.
