What’s it shaping up to be

is what I ask when a bird is backlit & I can’t see but the outline:

Big Head, Broad Neck, Relatively Short Tail, Thick bill slightly hooked.

A Vireo mayhap?

Then clouds shift & he turns to look at me through white spectacles.

Blue-headed Vireo!!

Makes me wonder about the Kerry/Lavrov agreement

to restart Syria peace talks & seek a cease-fire against all but ISIS.

What’ll it shape up to be?

A clear-headed Syria view is difficult to achieve, which leads me to muse on the similarities between this wrong-headed situation and figuring out that the backlit bird was a BLUE-HEADED VIREO. (a 420 character 9 liner)
