Daily Attention

Audubon: Mystery Solved Photo by Christopher F. Hansen


The wing

of the yellow-shafted flicker

turns red

for the eating of invasive honeysuckle.

What other easy-pickinsĀ  won’t last

the long migration,

or provide the stores we need?


What do we ingest that

colors us?

And might our friends

take note?
