This is what happens when you work from home.

I’ve never been a birdwatcher, but there’s drama outside the window this week. The pictures are fuzzy because I took them from inside the house. These birds have already been through enough.

Our backyard has recently been Crow City.  My daughter hung this bird feeder a few days ago and the crows took it over. It’s meant for smaller birds, like the ones above,  but the crows tilt it so the birdseed falls to the ground, then they call each other in loud voices to come gobble it up. A little consideration would be nice. Do these crows not remember when a couple of their babies fell into the yard and were rescued right here at Crow Hospital?

Small birds avoided us until this week.  It’s the first time we’ve seen anything besides crows fly into the yard.  Wonder if this bluebird is a good sign.

  1. I feel your frustration.

    Last year I went bird feeder crazy, putting six of them in our back yard. Here in North Texas we have lovely little finches of various colors and types. We have breathtakingly bright red cardinals and even orioles!

    And we have grackles. Related to crows and ravens these are the big bullies of the neiighborhood and they frighten away all but the defenseless but feisty sparrows, who have a mean streak of their own.

    Now that it’s spring again I have to rethink my addiction to bird watching from my family room. That’s why God gave us television.
