Roadside Sharpie

Sharp-shinned Hawk (juvie), near Clam Cove, Rockport, Maine, 25 February 2017.

Sharp-shinned Hawk (juvie).

Thick morning fog and balmy temps
Pushed and pulled us up the slope
Leaving robins, crows, and black-caps
To keep track of our muddy tramp.

Black-capped Chickadee, Beech Hill Preserve, Rockport, Maine, 25 February 2017.

Black-capped Chickadee.

Driving home I saw a little sharpie
Perched bolt upright on a fat tightrope
Of cable stretched between power poles—
A hawk scanning the fog for prey.
