Seventeen extremely free-range hens getting ready for bed
gradually hopping from level to level,
(one of them insists on going right to the top)
in my neighbour’s tall tree
by where I park the car.
A fox wouldn’t have a prayer.
PS – if you click on image and then magnify, you should be able to find all 17 ( like a puzzle in a comic book) given that they’re either white, black, buff or orange/greeny black. One black smudge upper right, behind a white one, I can’t decide. Might be sixteen.
