Let this poem be a Sunday
morning – quiet light floods
the room; birds tuning up
in the trees run through
a scribbled libretto
of courtship and gossip.
Bring your coffee back to bed.
Today anything’s possible, nothing
irredeemable. Sun warms
the bones of the earth,
in mosques and parks

This video is about nature reserve Polders Poelgeest in the Netherlands.
Today, once again to the nature reserve which I discovered when Baillon’s crakes nested there.
Swifts flying over the southern lake.
Gray lag geese with goslings. One adult goose with a green band with a number.
A reed bunting sings. A grey heron on the opposite bank of the lake.
A marsh warbler sings in the reedbed in the northern part of the southern lake.
Barn swallows flying.
In the northern lake, a shelduck swims with ten ducklings. The youngsters are already over half adult shelduck size. So, they are less in danger of predation by now.
A great cormorant flies.
A meadow brown butterfly.
Edible frog sound.
A female tufted duck with three ducklings, which drive frequently.
Not far away, a coot with a small chick.
At the eastern side of the northern lake, one of two redshanks takes off, calling.
An oystercatcher on an islet.
Two great crested grebes swimming.
This video is called CUTE BLUE TIT CHICKS FED BY PARENTS WITH 2 HELPERS.
Yesterday, and today, birds at the feeders on both sides of the house.
Now, also house sparrows at a feeder on the back side of the house. I had seen this species here a few times, but always at the other, front, side. A sign that this species is recovering from decline?
This morning, the only surviving young coot of the first brood of this year was swimming with its non-nesting parent, near the river-canal crossing. It is not much smaller than adult size by now, but it still has a juvenile white throat.
About forty meter away, the other parent sat on the nest. Next to it, a very small coot chick. Probably, more chicks under the parent’s wings. So, the youngsters of the second brood have hatched. Probably, they will not have to deal with the cold spring weather from when the first brood hatched.
It is by now almost as big as its parents.
Next to the youngster, five eggs of the second brood of this year.
The parents swam close to the nest. One of them brought a water plant to make the nest stronger. Probably no need to sit on the eggs today, as it is a hot day.
