Loved ones who are far away: How to know them?

They’re not like the tiny, migrating Ruby-Crowned Kinglets

I can easily ID even tho’ they dart through the roadside shrubs fastfast

into & out of my view.

Their wing-flicks are unmistakable.

& that male!

He sings this long, bubbly, amazingly loud song, sometimes with a double-note call.

FaceTime & texting help,

but I yearn to feast on the wing-flicks of the loved ones.
