Air Traffic Control

Watching the birds come in and out of the bird feeder reminded me of air traffic controllers who keep the airplanes coming in and out.
I was watching the line-up yesterday as the fledgling cardinal was waiting on the doves who was waiting on the blackbirds who were waiting on the common flicker.
It was interesting to see the bright yellow flash of the Yellow Finches as they zoom by.
Hearing the Carolina wrens make a fuss about something.
Seeing the tufted titmice come zooming in, make a call and then head out on the flightpath.
Since I have a compost pile out back, the gray catbirds are keeping the bugs down.
Many other birds to mention but when something startles them, off they go, back to the trees in their pattern.
