You flew into my life

cockatiel
Dear cockatiel,
I barely knew ye. You flew down from the tree in my front yard this afternoon and landed on my shoulder. You perched lightly, nibbling my hair and ear, while I considered what to do with you. After all, I like birds in trees best. You did not want to leave your spot, until I lured you off with bird seed. Then you disappeared while I was posting your appearance on the neighborhood listserv.

I hope you journeyed home safely!
A
