Nest Building

I watch her gathering twigs
in the
descending light
of the mountain forests.

There is something in her
movements suggesting she
is following nature’s plan.

I focus carefully through
a forest window waiting
for the right moment.

The mountains that enfold the vale
With walls of granite, steep and high,
Invite the fearless foot to scale
Their stairway toward the sky.

This male pyrrhuloxia looks a lot like a female Northern Cardinal and its song is nearly identical to the cardinal.
