Bird Poem

Fleet Foxes on the headphones, the gentle rocking of the train lulling me after a tough day at work, and the passage in the book I'm reading transforms from a simple list to a beautiful found poem.

Winter residents include red-tailed hawks, Cooper's hawks, sharp-shinned hawks, American kestrels, merlin and northern harriers. 
Birds that commonly nest in the field include northern flickers, woodcocks, ring-necked pheasants, brown thrashers, catbirds, common yellowthroats, and white-eyed vireos. 
They have been observed bathing in rainwater puddles on the runways.
