Twenty Four Hungry Mouths…

Well it is official, this morning at 3:00 a.m., Bozo and I started to count little squawking monsters in our yard. We have officially found six nests, a mixture of what looks like, three Song Thrush nests, Two Nightingale nests and one Sparrow nest. All of them healthy, wealthy and wise…

The pattern is like this all over the yard; babies sit quietly on a limb, mom or dad gathers worms and bugs, mom or dad flies to the limb, babies start squawking like little monsters, mom or dad knows who was fed last time and who is next and feed next in line, mom or dad fly away and babies shut up, then it all starts over again… 🙂

Last brush pile and it is full of baby birds all the time…

These monsters as I call them, are in the lilac trees, the cherry trees, the raspberry bushes, the brush pile, the apple trees and lined up on the roof top; all waiting for worms and bugs. My what a life and really I find myself singing that song about birds in the wilderness…

Birds in the Wilderness!

Here we sit like birds in the wilderness
Birds in the wilderness
Birds in the wilderness
Here we sit like birds in the wilderness
Waiting for our food

Here we sit like birds in the wilderness
Birds in the wilderness
Birds in the wilderness
Here we sit like birds in the wilderness
Waiting for our soup

Here we sit like birds in the wilderness
Birds in the wilderness
Birds in the wilderness
Here we sit like birds in the wilderness
Waiting for our bread

Here we sit like birds in the wilderness
Birds in the wilderness
Birds in the wilderness
Here we sit like birds in the wilderness
Waiting for our meat

Here we sit like birds in the wilderness
Birds in the wilderness
Birds in the wilderness
Here we sit like birds in the wilderness
Waiting for dessert

Now that sums up our yard real well…

Now I am watching these little monsters fly all over the place, but mom and dad just keep catering to the monsters and the monsters keep getting fatter and happier. Time to make them get their own food!

I am thinking about installing a air traffic control tower; it is dangerous out there at times…

PS: Sorry about all the bird stuff, but they really are wonderful and life is grand with all the little tykes running all over…

    Kyle, I’ve been curious for awhile; a bit off topic but, how are the vertical sticks attached to the horizontal ones on the fence? Nails? Thanks.

    Jim_D – Just nails and when it rots enough and the nail no longer holds, wire… 🙂 I collect the wire that the power company uses on their power lines. It is perfect for repair work as it is multi-strand aluminum alloy and just soft enough to twist,but strong… When they put in the transformer the other day I got several good strands to use in the future…
