Sheila's Friend's

Starlings daily besiege our back yard
Responding to containers of porridge,
Mixed with raisins and sultanas, as well
As various seeds and other produce
Which wild birds relish.

The odd robin, blackbird, wren,
Chaffinch, thrush, wood pigeon,
Blue tit, ring neck dove, seagull,
Crow, jackdaw, magpie, etc., but
The starlings surpass by number.

But there is one negative aspect and
That is the appearance of local cats
Who relish a bird, or two, or more…

Therefore, caution is relevant in order
To ensure the enjoyment which Sheila
Experiences while providing a daily
Meal for her numerous and various
Feathered friends!
