Because…squirrel.

About a week ago, I was pretty frustrated with the squirrel stealing birdseed situation. I was GRUMPY! 

I grumped around the house for a while and decided it was time to do something more constructive. It was time to get back to my desk.

Preoccupied with my inner turmoil, I turned the corner as I left the kitchen, started into my studio and came face to face with this. 

I had to laugh, just when I get annoyed with them they do something silly. I’m a sucker for silly.

 

UNBELIEVABLE!! Another Royal!

CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? I wasn’t even  making an effort and I found another Royal. THIS time I was able to get a name, may I introduce King Teddy! He seems mild of manner and intelligent, but that remains to be seen. You should never decide who someone is on meeting them for the first time.

I asked King Teddy if he knew the name of the Squirrel King and he told me the squirrel in question is King Lear, King of the Squirrels. How UNBELIEVABLE!

 

What goes on?

How’s everybody doing? I have run out of chocolate, but thank God I still have a box of Lucky Charms cereal tucked away.

This cute male bluebird enjoyed one of our rare days of sun this past week and told me through the window into the woods, to ration the bird seed. How did they know we were going to be tightening our belts and avoiding close contact with people?

When I think about it, I have noticed birds lined up at the windows watching my laptop screen when I read COVID-19 updates. Is there even MORE to birds than we knew? 

Now I’m wondering if they ARE able to read, what else can they do?

Gardening?

Paint with their feet?

Square dance?

Direct traffic?

The mind boggles.

There once was a bird garbed in red,

from the tip of his tail to his head.

I should mention the fact, that his facial feathers were black,

And I’ve decided I’m calling him Fred.
