birds














Conceit


I heard a winter tree in song

Its leaves were birds, a hundred strong;

When all at once it ceased to sing,


For every leaf had taken wing.




by Mervyn Peake











And

less

poetically .......









..... my newest bird feeder.

Who'd have thought fat balls could look so sinister?

I wasn't at all prepared for the disturbingly gruesome wicker-man/totem appearance of this.

Lets hope it doesn't spoil the birds' appetites.
