Looking deep into the woods,"Here they come again," said the Pres.
The corn had just been put out in the clearing that the Pres plows for the deer.
First the lookout appeared.
Then a second.
Then, racing through the snow, the whole gang was there. They looked like big brown bugs, pecking away, while still more made their way through the thickets and along the trail.
Then they got down right brazen. They flew over the fence and attacked.
They scared away all my little birds...all the Juncos, the House Finches, the Eastern Towhees, the Nuthatches, the Chickadees, the Cardinals...all of them flew into the thickets.
They scared away Bubba's cousin, Red! (he kept peeking out of the snow tunnel under the wheelbarrow!!)
They even scared away the gray squirrels!
Reaching up, one of them figured out that there was suet and seed stuck to the top of the baffle. Watching her peck away at the savory feast, we were impressed by her intelligence.
Then another decided that she too would try the same thing. Scaring the previous one away by chasing her, she returned to the feeders.
However...she was not the brightest bulb in the box!
Dumbfounded, bewildered and repeatedly bumping her head on the underside, she just could not figure out how to get the goodies stuck on top of the baffle...LOL!!!
What made you laugh today?
