all tuckered out

 

He was just sitting there. For the longest time, just sitting there.

 

 

Not standing.  Not flitting around. Not doing anything.

Just sitting.

 

 

I was a bit mesmerized, I don’t mind telling you.

I’d never seen a bird do that, plop down on the squirrel guard and just hang out there. Not in all the years of looking out the big kitchen window, not in all the thousands–or tens of thousands–of bird sightings there.

Not once.

Not ever.

Was he okay?

I watched, and waited.

Finally, he turned to me.

 

can’t a guy just take a load off???

 

Well…yes.

Yes, of course.

And so I turned and left him to it.
