The Eastern Towhee, one of my backyard favorites, stars in today’s limerick.
Two Towhees in colors of fall
dropped in with their name-saying call
While she stood and she sipped
he splashed and he dipped
Not minding my presence at all!
There are several more limericks leaping about inside my head – once I start rhyming it’s hard to stop. My family will gladly testify to this slightly annoying, but mostly amusing quirk!
So, tune in tomorrow for another addition of lighthearted limericks; featuring, whichever bird sits still long enough for me to get enough pictures!
