Back in March I identified Thornbills during my walks but could not get a picture. With the leaves gone I am having some success with capturing these tiny birds but they are still give me grief with their fidgeting.
Words to walk with:
From The Making of Birds by Katherine Tynan
God make him birds in a pleasant humour;
Tired of planets and suns was He.
He said: “I will add a glory to summer,
Gifts for my creatures banished from Me!”
The dear Lord God of His glories weary –
Christ our Lord had the heart of a boy –
Made him birds in a moment of merry,
Bad them soar and sing for His joy.
