6. Baby is so greedy and impatient that he gets in the easy as the man tries to

turn over the soil. You can tell when he starts to feel less hungry, because he just sits and waits to be served by hand.

9. I live in FL, and we have lizards in our yard. They LOVE when we garden

They are normally skittish but when my husband or I do any sort of yardwork they hang around close by to grab the grubs and crawlies that scurry from the dirt. It's pretty cool to see -- my husband elbows deep in the garden and a little audience of brown and green anole lizards hanging out by his feet and getting fat, full bellies.

They also hang out when we were chopping wood this winter b/c we were throwing them the grubs we found in the wood.

They get as pushy as that robin.

12. The ibises (ibi??) that come by here

come in big flocks (well, big to me) -- like 20 or so and they land in the neighborhood and just go house to house, yard to yard. We have some cranes that like to stand in the front yard by the porch and pick Anoles off the plants

Lately we've had large large large flocks of crows -- hundreds -- that descend upon either the trees overhanging our house or the trees in the guy's yard across the street - and they quork quork quork. Usually about 2 hours earlier than I'd like to get up on a Saturday or Sunday. They're just amazing to watch. I work from home and I know they're coming when all the squirrels scatter and the sky turns dark and you hear that quork quork quork....oh boy, put the tarp on the car, the birds have arrived....

A couple of times though I thought he was going to stab the little bird with his pitch fork.

17. K&R! The bird still has speckles, so she must be quite young

Which could explain why she's just fine with this. At one point she looked like a baby bird opening her beak for Mama... Thanks for posting!

18. Definitely young just based on how vocal it is.

I don't think an adult would get this close to a person (or any other large animal). Juveniles are programmed differently. Lots of robins around now in southern WA state. I may have to start carrying a shovel around when I'm birding!

19. It looked like a baby bird when she opened her beak to be fed.

That was just the cutest thing! My mother always had a bird feeder and loved the birds, so I got to know a little, did know that robins eat worms and not seeds. I'm in New York - rural area, not the city - and we always have lots of robins in the spring. It''s a superstition that when you see your first robin of the year it's good luck if it flies up and bad luck if it flies down. I don't know where I picked that up, but it stuck with me...
