After installing a small bird feeder in the backyard last week, I was ready to snap pictures of the feathered visitors that seemed to swarm here out of nowhere.
Alas, the small feeder took a fatal fall, either the victim of the windy days we've been experiencing or from the weight of the enormous squirrels that hang around this neighborhood.
In the midst of a wild health week, Mr. T knew that putting up a new feeder would help me feel better.
So up it went and as I watched for new visitors, I realized that we had some crazy big black and white birds eating the seed!
Guilty as heck!
Holy Bostons Batman!
Now how desparate does a dog have to be to eat bird seed?
Now that the black and white "pigeons" have finished cleaning the spilled "treasure" I hope to start getting some pictures of the wonderful variety of birds that show up in this backyard.
Here's one I hope you can see. Hard to get a picture and I need to refill their special feeders - these hummingbirds are quite plentiful.
Can you see it?
Fingergate Update: Still in limbo for repair surgery, but I think I will get the go ahead within a day or two. Turns out I had a lot of fluid in my lungs, not pneumonia. Was sent to a cardio doc to interpret check xrays, get some meds to stabilize BP and get rid of fluids. Three days later I am 15 lbs lighter. All liquid! Breathing finally better. After surgery I will need to follow up with Cardio Doc to figure out why this all happened.... I'm still trying to wrap my mind around it all, but I guess I can say my little finger probably did save me afterall.
All the best for the week ahead.
Some bloggy friends going through some tough times right now. I have you special people in my thoughts!
(And , "yay" for Ben Affleck!)
