Birds in my Forest -- a Challenge Poem

Pine Warbler

Yellow-rumped Warbler

Birds in my Forest

Many birds are in my forest,
Let me tell you about my three
Killer Jane annihilates rest
Bonnie Sue hides up in her tree
That leaves for you my Marilee
Workaholic, she watches all
Savior of the world, help at call

Downy Woodpecker

Today I am linked with Margaret at the Real Toad's Play It Again, Toads! #14 poetry blog.
It is Fireblossom Friday's February, 2014 Challenge (here) for my replay. "Today we're going to try the Rhyme Royal. It's pretty simple, really."The rhyme scheme is a-b-a-b-b-c-c. You can write seven-line stanzas, or you can break it up as a tercet and two couplets, like this: a-b-a, b-b, c-c. OR as a quatrain and a tercet, like this: a-b-a-b, b-c-c." (I chose this second form in Iambic tetrameter:.)

Great capture of their personalities.

Cute! (In answer to your comment on mine: I wasn't much of a praying child, nor very sentimental about animals, but I did have a sense even then that all living things matter.)

Very nice Jim ~ I like how you gave them names & character ~ I dream of having a bird feeder its not possible as I live in the city and the squirrels are plenty ~ Take care ~

Honestly, they do start to develop personalities and characterizations as one watches them daily. Well done.
