Birdtober Day Thirteen: Fox Sparrow


Photo Source:

The Fox Sparrow gets its name from its coloring. I've never seen one, but I read about them here, here, here, and here. That's a lot of reading for seventeen syllables, which is all I ended up writing (one mediocre haiku). After the haiku, you'll find a link to someone else's poem, which includes the line: "A sooty fox sparrow embodies happiness."

Rusty bird scratches,
Hunts bugs and seeds on the ground
Jumps, sings, nests down low.
