Unusual Bird!

I was SO excited
when I spotted
this little bird on my fence
last spring;
even more delighted
when it seemed
to stay and pose
for me as I crept closer
to try to get a better shot.

Imagine my chagrin

...I finally realized
it was a fake bird
my neighbor had attached to the fence.

I got a great laugh out of it,
but I still don't know why
it was placed there.

  1. How unusual.....nothing like being caught out by a fake bird.

  2. LOL, thanks for the chuckle Ed. You are brave to admit this you know......:) I think we all can relate to something similar in our lives.
