Silly little birds!

The birdbath is full but they insist on holding onto the pond liner to sip water. It seems as if they are daredevils, challenging one another to climb down anything (aerator hose, electric cord, plastic flower pot hanger holding the waterlily, leaves) to get closer to the pond surface.


One of the koi came up to investigate.

1. We need a birdbath cam!

 

Your description draws the picture, the camera would be bonus.

3. D'oh. It would be great but I don't have the knowledge (or funds) to do that this year.

Maybe next year.

I get a lot of exercise walking in to look out the window to laugh (and stop myself from worrying if one has fallen in).



This gif always cracks me up.

6. Simple things amuse me.

Like the way my body was still vibrating (3 hours after I got home) from driving between trucks all day. It took hours to fall asleep last night.

7. "Ooh! Hey! Look everybody! Stan and Phil are fighting!"

"FIGHT, FIGHT, FIGHT, FIGHT, FIGHT!"


..."Oh, hey! Are you guys okay?..."

2. They are creatures of habit.

The bird feeder that I typically use to feed the birds is so filthy that I used a second feeder while I figure out how to pull the dirty one down to clean it. It's been 24 hours and the bird chorus that I usually hear in the morning is gone because the birds don't like the second feeder. They're gone.

4. They'll be back. I couldn't find the red food coloring for the hummingbird sugar mix.

The hummers came to the feeder anyway.

Your birds know the food source. Maybe the feeder just needs a bit of bird poo on it so it won't smell so new. If you have the room, hang both feeders when you've cleaned the first one.
