For the Birds

I felt like Tippi Hedren yesterday.
First I find a very tiny bird trapped in our storage structure. He was buzzing about a window trying to get out. I nudged him with the pool net and he went to a second window above the door. I worked to coax him down to the door, and he shot across the room and slammed into another window. I thought he killed himself, but was just temporarily knocked unconscious. I got him out where he slowly regained consciousness and he made his escape before the cats even knew he was there.
THEN at dinner, Stewdaughter I sees a critter on the front gate. I can't make it out. I get my flashlight. Still no good. I think it is a possum, but has a red head. I go out. It is a ROOSTER.
It then makes itself at home by our window and was still there this morning. He finally headed out just before I did.
What a world. What a world.

I think it is a sign that you should get some hens...and a few cows in that exspansive back yard of yours and become "Farmer Stewdog"...you and the little women out there collecting the eggs and milking the cows...ahh...bringing a little of the Midwest to sunny SoCal!!!

Leave it to Templeton PECK to comment on my birds. But there's more. Mr. Rooster disappeared yesterday morning, but showed up again last evening. . and then two chickens appeared. Quick. . call PETA before I cook them all!
