Cheeky Bird

by Christy
(San Ramon, CA)

There is a small brownish bird with a slight, matching crest. He is eating something on my newly budding oak tree. His song sounds like "cheeky bird", but he also sings other trills. I haven't ever heard this bird in 28 years in this house. I've looked in my books!
