House Finch At The Feeder

A mushroom growing under the leaves on the forest floor, before the snow.  I might not have seen it if not for that bright red.

Watching a House Finch at the feeder,  red head that fades to soft warm gray.

As he pecks at the seeds
his white and black
striped gray wings
just the slightest,

revealing a thin line of the bright red that lies beneath them.
