what i thought was a goldfinch landed on the hummingbird feeder and started drinking. whaaaa? so i went and bought a goldfinch sock.
so i went and got a housefinch feeder.
and while all these shennanigans were going on the goldfinches invited all their friends over and the hummingbirds just went on about their business unperturbed. except for now they’re competing with the bright yellow ORIEL (!) who apparently have a sweet tooth. and now there are 2 of them not 1. except their nectar is supposed to be more diluted than the hummer’s. and also they like to rock the feeder. so i had to go get an oriole feeder. the end.
except that’s not the end because then the poor little goldfinches kept trying to land on the fountain to drink and i felt sorry for them so i went and got a hanging bird waterer/bath thing.
so now pretty much. it’s a 3-ring-bird-circus out back.
i have my evening cocktails while i watch the orioles rock the feeder.
oh. some dumbass stole all of my peaches. every gorgeous one. stripped my little tree clean. luckily i had picked 3 the day before. the sweetest juiciest peaches evah! and no it was not a squirrel. or a racoon. sigh. just another neighborhood crime to solve.
and now. a word from our sponsers:
blast off is in 4 more days.
yahooers trying to yahoo: don’t forget to use the appropriate password when you join por favor. that will save me from rifling through the paypal receipts to see if you’re legit. which i can’t do anymore on account of having cocktails to drink, a circus to conduct, cats to appease, and things to sew.
