    Really nice haiku. I looked up the bird, once classified as a thrush, it's actually an Old World flycatcher. Incredible looking bird!

    warm regards,

    Thank you Alan, I always look for your comments on my works, they just add a sense of such subtle warmth to what I have tried to capture, I agree blue throats are incredible birds.
