Distracted : Out my window

It is a beautiful October afternoon and
I didn't much feel like staying in my chair.
Out side my window at work is a courtyard 
walled in on one side by a 3 story 
brick building covered with ivy.
There are windows under that bunch of greenery believe it or not!

Out of the corner of my eye I saw some movement.
A starling was perched on the vines
gobbling up the blue berries that hung in great clusters.
