Behold…the eastern bluebird.
Bluebirds apparently are hunters…birds of prey. As far as I can see, they are only intimidating to very small things. They hunt for insects, spiders, little bits of fruit and other creatures from whatever perch seems promising, they watch the ground, and then swoop down, pouncing on their prey.
I have seen this pouncing. At the time that I first observed this, I didn’t know what they were doing, but after long minutes of observation, I believed and still do, that they are actually addicted to eating dirt.
” THIS IS QUITE PLEASING TO MY GASTRO SYSTEM. I DETECT A SLIGHT HINT OF TRUFFLES, WITH PERHAPS A DASH OF HICKORY TREE.”
“I MUST HAVE ONE MORE BITE TO BE CERTAIN.”
“OH DEAR…THAT LAST BITE MADE ME FEEL SO FULL..I NEED TO FIND ANOTHER LINE OF WORK… ONE WEEK ON THE JOB AND I’VE GAINED EIGHT OUNCES!”
BABY BIRD WAS THROWING A FIT BECAUSE IT WAS HUNGRY….
I THINK BABY BIRD MAY HAVE FORGOTTEN WHY IT WAS YODELING SO MUCH, I SAW IT READING A MAGAZINE AND HOLLERING AT THE SAME TIME. FINALLY MOTHER ARRIVED BACK ON THE SCENE…
BABY’S DEMANDING VOCALIZATION STARTED TO OVERWHELM MAMA…
AFTER A MOMENT SHE CAUTIOUSLY APPROACHED BABY AND GAVE HIM THE YUMMY BITE.
ACTUALLY, IT LOOKS MORE LIKE HE JUST GRABBED IT OUT OF HER MOUTH. I’M THINKING MAMA CAN’T WAIT FOR THE SUN TO GO DOWN AT NIGHT SO THAT SHE CAN PUT BABY TO BED, PUT HER FEET UP AND REST HER WEARY WINGS.
THIS IS AN APPROXIMATELY UP-TO-DATE REPORT FROM ME, SQUIGGY…YOUR SOURCE FOR ALL THE NEWS THAT IS THE NEWS AND LOTS OF STUFF THAT ISN’T NEWS.
FRESH OUT OF THE MOUTH OF A RELIABLE SOURCE…(WELL ACTUALLY I HEARD IT YESTERDAY…FROM A FRIEND OF A FRIEND OF A FRIEND)..IS THIS SHOCKING NEWS…
A LARGE QUANTITY OF PEANUTS DISAPPEARED FROM THE POPULAR, BUT HIGHLY OVER-RATED FEEDING STATION, “ZANNYRO’S DINE AND DASH.”
WITNESSES REPORT SEEING A STEADY STREAM OF TUFTED TITMICE, (YES..THAT IS A TYPE OF REAL BIRD), RAIDING THE PEANUT SUPPLY HOUSE. OUR WITNESSES SAW THE GANG OF TITMICE FLY TO THE WOODS AND THEN, AND I QUOTE, “THEY WERE GONE.”
THIS KIND OF MADNESS MUST BE STOPPED. SEVERAL BLUE JAYS WERE REPORTED TO HAVE GONE TO BED HUNGRY THAT NIGHT AND ONE WOODPECKER HAD TO RESORT TO LOOKING FOR INSECTS TO EAT IN THE TREE BARK… WHERE IT NORMALLY WOULD.
I WOULD REPORT ON THE WEATHER, BUT AS YOU CAN SEE BY LOOKING AT ME…IT’S BEEN SNOWING…SO WHY STATE THE OBVIOUS.
IN ENTERTAINMENT NEWS, THAT MASTER OF TAP DANCE, PEACHES THE PINE SQUIRREL, WILL BE PERFORMING AT ZANNYRO’S DINE AND DASH…WE JUST DON’T KNOW WHEN…SO MAKE YOUR RESERVATIONS EARLY!
TUNE IN TOMORROW FOR MORE BREAKING NEWS…THERE MAY BE SOME,BUT YOU NEVER KNOW.
