"Holiday revellers" and the image of the red birds make me think of Christmas and how near it is! Short and endearing. :)

I hope you had a good holiday. I loved seeing the red ibis. I had no idea that they had red feathers, I've only seen them as white! So thank you for this! And I too love the movement and stability in your haiku.
