Plenty of vacancies – all perches empty
at the backyard bird feeders; and
right about the time we pause
to consider the cause of the lull,
we catch sight of him poised on the rail –
still, silent, watching, waiting.
He senses the camera click at once,
turning his head completely around,
seeking the source of the disruption.
When I step too close, he deserts his post,
vexed at having been disturbed.
Only heartbeats later
several dozen small birds descend,
entirely too eager to resume dinner.
