They Were Buggin’

The aerial acrobatics have begun . . . My birds are here!!! They were buggin’ Dad when he was up, staring in the kitchen window and looking mildly outraged. They were at the feeder this morning – I got it up first thing yesterday. And so, already two males are squabbling over ownership of the feeder. Chasin’ each other all over the front yard, zooming by the windows. Meanwhile the clever females sit at the feeder and enjoy the free lunch.

OK kiddo – I’m off to do more stuff to open the cottage.

      after all of the comments criticizing punctuation, it cracks me up that this mom actually put apostrophes at the end of buggin’ and chasin’.

      How sweet! She sounds like my dad, all excited over the birds…

      Those clever lady birds- just like us humans!

      I really like “mildly outraged.”

      what is the deal with moms and birds? My mom used to always say “look, the birds are eating and so are you!” and point at the bird feeder outside the kitchen window. Some kind of tactic to make me eat more…this happened well into my 20′s.
