The birds I saw during Lockdown

Pheasants whose noise is so disturbing 

Soaring swooping kahu, king of the skies, top of the food chain

Sparrows that chirp chirp chirp and chirp 

 

Oh no, a stoat! 

The blackbirds flee and my dad chases the stoat with a rock

The stoat runs away

 

A piwakawaka peeps, almost landing on my finger 

I look up into a tree at a shimmering green bellbird 

singing in the autumn breeze

 

A grey warbler warbles on top of a bush
