    Spoonbills do less damage to the environment than we humans, so this particular bird is forgiven. Nature is, after all, incredibly generous. Seven words/ten syllables prioritize the correct balance we so easily forget due to our own species' over abundance and neediness. Thank you, Bill. I read far wider concerns to this poem than maybe you had intended. Thus is the nature of haiku!
