"Hi Folks...Audrey here
I'm starting to hear "Chicka..dee..dee...dee...dee...dee" in my countless dreams all day.
We have a psycho bird living on our porch that is scaring off all visitors. Who knew there were dive-bombing, hell-raising Chickadees in our neighbourhood. It's the most exciting thing that has happened in this dull town in ages but apparently the screams from our visitors is causing some disruption. If someone would let me at it I could take care of things pronto but apparently that ain't gonna happen."
Deb says she saw the mom poke her head out of the hole yesterday, jump out and hang on the hanging plant and then fly off. I'm thinking if I just stand at the door with my mouth open she just might be dumb enough...oh never mind!"
"AUDREY...BEHAVE YOURSELF. Oh yes, and it's time to trim your nails."
"Well, that took care of her."
I'd love to show you inside the nest but I have yet to go that close to it. I think, although the bird was dumb enough to make her nest at our front door, she just might be smart enough to be startled and then she may leave the eggs or birds, not sure what is in there, and not return. I will do whatever it takes to not be the cause of that. I will, though, try to photograph her head peaking out one of these days.
Would you like to have a peak at a new piece of pottery I treated myself to? Maybe it's not as exciting as dive-bombing birds but it's pretty, that's for sure.
"Audrey...you really don't hide well."
Victoria Jenkins who has a studio just outside of our town.
If you would like to take a peak at her work go here...Victoria jenkins pottery
See...isn't she amazing? She also shows off some of her favorite potters' work.
I have one more piece to add to my collection of pretty pottery.
Well, it looks like someone else is interested in the comings and goings of momma bird. That's Rae-Rae and she's just out of the bathtub, hence the wet coat, where she loves to get a drink from the tap.
Thanks for stopping by and we'll keep you posted on the baby birds.
