Parlement of Foules

I have no recent bird photos for St. Valentine's Day, when the birds are said to choose their mates, only those of a recent sky on a very windy day, and the emerging daffodils in the yard. But the birds I saw this week included --

five turkeys eating carrion on Christ School Rd.

thirteen wild geese flying overhead towards Kenilworth Lake at sunset

a solitary crow ("One crow sorrow") over the tall pines by the driveway, fussing at someone

a towhee scratching in the leaves

goldfinches on the feeders

and a pair of shy cardinals on the ground.
