About the Birds

…in which the Meadowlark Flock is introduced

Flock Portrait 2

A candid moment with the Meadowlark Flock

This is the Meadowlark Flock. They live near the Mississippi River Valley, in the crevice of a leaning Black Walnut Tree.

The old Black Walnut: the land rolls and rises to meet its gnarled trunk. A thick, bright blanket of furry green moss here; tall grasses, winter wheat, Columbine, and a Butterfly bush there; just beyond a stream lined with limestone rip-rap; and then the crick below.

A perfect home for the Meadowlarks, who consist of

  1. the patriarch: Nuthatch – a Red Breasted Nuthatch
  2. the matriarch: Titmouse – a Tufted Titmouse
  3. the eldest offspring: Master Sterling – a headstrong Bobwhite Quail
  4. the middle offspring: Princess Poppy – a Chickadee with fashion
  5. the youngest offspring: Baby Tilly – a Chickadee with quiet sense

*They also have one peculiar pet: Mr. Jack London – a furry dust bunny.

The Meadowlarks share their stories with me, the writer — Suzy.
