All of the babies are gone from the nests and I am going to go out in a few minutes and remove the very dirty leftovers( poopie nest).
Now as for the other birds that "landed" in our yard, they are not so nice to us. I do love to listen to mockingbirds singing, music coming in from my bedroom window at night. I try to figure out a pattern in their music, and that puts me right to sleep. However, we did not have any Mockingbird nests in our yard this year, some babies did wandered in and decided to call our place home, until their wings were strong enough to carry them away. They are different from the Finches in that they, the baby mockingbirds, make this obnoxious squawk to let Mama know where they are so they can be fed. In the past we have had Mockingbird nests in our yard and let me tell you, I HATE IT! The parents also work together as a team. They are very territorial and if you get anywhere near their young'uns they swoop and dive bomb you trying to keep you away. Years ago I had to rely on my umbrella, just to take out the trash! Seriously, swooping makes all the hair on my body stand on end! So, getting back to this week, and the baby
intruders birds. I wanted to get a picture of two of them that had taken up residence on my ice cream set in the backyard. Every time I went outside, just the warning noises from Mama and Daddy set my hair on edge. So, being the resourceful person that I am, I used the nearest shelter I could find.
I'm not sure, but I think someone captured another type of fowl in our yard. Could that be a chicken I see?
