Blue

The blue sky pulled up the covers and slept in on the third Sunday in May. The woods echoed with the tap, tap, tap of the woodpeckers and the songs of the birds. The plants have grown rapidly in the first month of warm weather this year creating many hiding places for the birds and the other small animals.

A house wren sang from the fence around the bison and the elk enclosure to claim his territory. By the entrance to the woods, an indigo bunting searched for his breakfast in the bushes.
