A fuzzy face soon raids the stash.
He pilfers grain the birdies need,
This little guy's manners, so brash.

Three golden birds with golden song
Flew in to eat sunflower seed.
Bright feathers flashing color creed
Of deepest hue to come along.
I hope they feel that they belong
In my backyard.
I'll feed their need.
Three golden birds with golden song
Flew in to eat sunflower seed.

A Kestrel’s talons
Are a raptor’s wicked tool,
Have hard sharpened ends.
So follow all safety rules.
They don’t suffer any fools.

A Kestrel’s talons
