You Talkin’ to Me?

The mix of birds has changed in our back yard. Several Band-tailed Pigeons have become regular visitors to our deck this Spring.

Unfortunately for them, we don’t have a Band-tailed Pigeon feeder. So they have to share a feeder that’s also used by lots of other birds and the squirrels.

The squirrels tend to be very aggressive when they’re hungry and they bully the birds away from the feeder just for fun. This week there’s been lots of drama on the deck between the squirrels and the birds.

But this pretty boy has learned how to project a bit of attitude by fluffing out his feathers and making himself look like a “tough guy” thus increasing his chances at the feeder.

Would you stand between him and his feeder? “Well would ya, punk?”

Cheers – DJD

Rain for the week: 2.0 in. Year To Date: 38.5 in.
