and watch the busy traffic.......... streaming from the woods...
large groups of shell quail............in a constant flow and hurry
to the local watering hole
The bobwhite quail also hurry in,
the long billed and short billed birds
all flying in for a drink and a bite to eat.
The small owls who have taken up residence in the trees
watch from their tall perch
as a hungry and thirsty rabbit hops along the patio
to come to the same spot,
to the small cement feeders and shallow water containers
After the road runner enjoys a cool drink,
it spots a cement planter and decides to make a bed
enjoying the moist dirt inside
constantly scratching to make it just right.
Then it hops out
and enjoys the warmth of the sun
that is making the cool of the morning disappear.
In no time, it is up and on it's way.
Throughout the day, there is always some kind of bird
or creature, stopping by to rest at the feed and water.
A constant flow of traffic...........but
one that is without honking horns, road rage or stress.
A road much traveled........
but much more enjoyable!
So tell me,
what traffic is running past your back yard?
I would love to hear!
