Playground games

You never know who is going to show up and claim to be top bird on the playground. These birds remind me of my grade school playground where “King of the Hill” was a popular recess activity.  Today’s competitors include King Cardinal and a hopeful challenger,  a much smaller but determined sparrow.

But before the contest can be decided,  an even bossier bird enters the fray, sends the contestants flitting away, and claims the crown as King of the Post!

The winner!

The bell rings.
Recess is over.
But tomorrow will be another day on the playground.

Sometimes it’s just fun to add a little imagination to the pictures!

See you soon!

  1. This was a fun read Carolyn. It is sad that people label them birdbrains – that is hardly the case, especially as you see here, and the last bird to arrive probably finds himself with no other competitors at that post, so he just flies away dejected in the end. 🙂
