tiniest birds–answering bits of intent

The same flock through here, daily

tumbling through bushes
over and under, same size as the leaves

One bush tit separates, detours to the window
tries to grab the fly on the inside of the pane

Interesting! Do you suppose he spotted it from the group? I have birds that try to fly into the window. Now I wonder if they see a bug.

he saw it. I've seen sparrows do it too. Then there are the cedar waxwings who don't understand windows, crash at top speed...

How fascinating bird are. Windows must be so confusing to them.

I don't think I've ever seen a cedar waxwing here. You must write a poem about them.
