WAXWINGS
by Robert Francis

Four Tao philosophers as cedar waxwings
chat on a February berry bush
in sun, and I am one.

Such merriment and such sobriety--
the small wild fruit on the tall stalk--
was this not always my true style?

Above an elegance of snow, beneath
a silk-blue sky a brotherhood of four
birds. Can you mistake us?

To sun, to feast, and to converse
and all together--for this I have abandoned
all my other lives.

Pine Grosbeak
In winter, Pine Grosbeaks form small groups and travel together in search of seeds and fruits, often showing up at bird feeders. Some winters, they move (or “irrupt “) farther south in search of food. In Massachusetts, they’re considered a rare bird. But, guess what? They’ve been spotted right here in Windsor! According to Massachusetts Rare Bird Alerts, some Pine Grosbeaks were reported to be seen on January 27, 2019 on North Street. —PC
