Poems about Avian Life: BIRDLORE, part#2

 EDITORS' NOTE from your blogging team of Dr. G. H. and Giorgio Coniglio (registered pseudonym): If you are looking for our easy-to-digest daily blog "Daily ILLUSTRATED NONSENSE", click HERE to get to the site you want.


What you have below is our more encyclopedic blog, "Edifying Nonsense."
This site will pique your interest for a longer duration with entire collections about a particular topic. But, even devoted readers can develop fatigue, so as verses are added over time, and the total verses exceed a dozen, we tend to invoke binary fission, and split the group into two informative servings.

This post represents the continuation of an earlier series dealing with LANDBIRDS. To see the blogpost with the first group of illustrated verses on this topic, dated September 2021, click HERE

But bear in mind that these accumulations only represent a portion of our outpourings for birdwatchers and lovers. You can view an even more extensive collection concerning WATERFOWL by following the links at the end of this post. 

Note that Fred the robin has also appeared with his colleague Carl the cardinal in the blogpost "Curtained Verse", a collection of illustrated verses that you can find by clicking HERE.

   The bird-photo above was kindly contributed by Betsy Crosswell.


(Ed. note) If you enjoyed these illustrated verses about landbirds, you might also want to work your way through our collection of some forty illustrated short poems about waterfowl. Proceed to 'Immersible Verse: Limericks about Waterfowl', here on our full-service blog 'Edifying Nonsense'. 

AND, if you are really into this stuff, you might enjoy reviewing some longer illustrated poems (15 to 30 lines) highlighting individual types of birds, in concoctions that adorn special monthly posts on our other blog, "Daily Illustrated Nonsense". We have, tongue-in-cheek, named these 'brief sagas', and you can find the relevant posts here. BTW, almost all the photo-illustrations derive from G.C.'s i-phone 7 camera.

also, with respect to waterfowl: The Cormorant Rookery, and Life As A Loon

Once you arrive, you can select your time-frame of interest from the calendar-based listings in the righthand margin, and check the daily offerings for any month in the years 2020 and 2021, and more! (There are now 850 daily entries on the Daily blog, and most of these are also presented here on 'Edifying Nonsense' in topic-based collections.)
