i mean business (39 of 1)

I only caught part of this bird conversation, but I heard enough to know all I needed to know.

The bluejay merely asked the woodpecker not to plop it’s entire body down on the food, to consider that others would be eating from that spot after it left.

I hate to tell you this, but there are some birds that can be a little selfish. It takes a strong bird to confront one of these types and to endure the self-righteous scolding that these greedy ones feel entitled to give.

I will attempt to be as brave as the bluejay and ask you all not to prostrate yourself on food that is meant to serve more than one person. Feel free to follow my lead and instruct your friends and family on proper etiquette.( This advice holds true whether in a home setting or restaurant setting.)

  1. This reminded me of buffets where you see people fingering food and putting it back. Made me an a la carte person long ago. Love this priceless photo though. Gutsy jay to put the big flicker (is that what he is?) in his place … although, come to think of it, the bigger bird has already taken up his place and then some.


    1. A flicker is a member of the woodpecker family, but they coloration is different for sure…they’re gorgeous! https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=https://d1ia71hq4oe7pn.cloudfront.net/photo/60403261-720px.jpg&imgrefurl=https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Northern_Flicker/species-compare/&h=540&w=720&tbnid=glCcIw2TtmOkgM:&q=flicker+bird&tbnh=150&tbnw=200&usg=AI4_-kSULInGZD6Ys0g5q1prizkcu-ndog&vet=12ahUKEwiPrJKJieHfAhULWa0KHTK-D2UQ_B0wFXoECAEQBg..i&docid=_10gpn74K0-LTM&itg=1&client=safari&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiPrJKJieHfAhULWa0KHTK-D2UQ_B0wFXoECAEQBg
      I’m not a buffet person either…watched a little girl mess with the salad. Yuck.
