Patients, Persistence and Perseverance
There is a Northern Flicker that has claimed a tree across the street from the apartment. For the past three weeks the bird has been calling continually from sunrise to sunset - with time out for lunch. He has a perfectly good tree but for all his calling he hasn't attracting another Flicker to share his tree.
I admire the bird for his patients, persistence and perseverance in his pursuit. He is out there day after day, doing his very best, from dawn till dusk.
Hang in there little buddy!
