Get Rid Of The Advertisements

What Bird

Picture, courtesy of Jim Smith

I once owned oh so many books
to help identify
God's creatures dwelling on this Earth,
especially feathered ones which fly.

But, when my life quite fell apart
all my treasures left behind.
Jim, I'm sorry but I cannot
an I.D. for this one find.

At first it seemed to me a finch
but now I have some doubts.
He is not, like me, an Aussie
but...what IS his whereabouts ?

Such a bright and chipper chappie
with a curious, eager look,
his colours rich and lovely...
sorry, I just don't have that book.

Now Jim, when you are visiting
the local aviary,
could you please investigate
this bird's I.D. for me?
