Yes, we have grass, but our suburb in Regina's northwest is not the grasslands.
You will be happier out of the city, so I can understand why you stayed such a very short time before flying away.
I'm sorry we didn't have more bugs and small seeds for you — I can't even promise that we'll do better next time, because it's likely better for you if you find a wilder place. (Though my yard is pretty wild, by some standards...)
I wish, though, that you'd come in early morning — or stay until evening — so I could hear you sing.
So many regrets.
But welcome back! I'm glad you dropped by, with your chestnut wing patch, white outer tail feathers, white eye-ring and streaky feathers.
