It's gone to the birds...

WOOO! I thought that I would show you some of the tweets that have been handing out in my yard, since the Army of Four have tweets that they are sharing too.

The first thing I want to show you is not exactly a tweet... it is a Turkey. GOBBLE GOBBLE! So we were hanging out and mom's neighbor calls and tells us there is a Turkey in our yard to go out and see it. This Turkey had a purpose because he/she was walking as fast as those legs would take it. It is odd, because we don't really see Turkey's out walking around in our area.

Another morning while we were outside, I spotted this. Mom says it is a Robin. It was just hopping around sticking it's head in the ground. Humm... I do that at the beach when I dig in the sand... but I never pull out these worm things that mom says it is finding.

Oh the beauty of a Blue Bird! We have a Blue Bird house in our backyard and it stays occupied pretty much year round. Mom saw the dad handing out one day while we were in the backyard. Check him out... Isn't he lovely?


Our weather is odd here lately. Last week it was 100, and this week it is 90. by 11am, it was still 80 degrees. Anyroo, Mom, Tia and I were all sitting out on the porch this morning and watched the Blue Bird go in and out of the house, then bring food to feed the babies. They were all making such a racket!!! Mom took a video, but the stoopid neighbor decided to get out with his yard blower thing, so it is VERY hard to hear the babies. If you listen very carefully at the time the yard blower thing stops and starts back up, you can hear the babies talking. Enjoy!

Mom was able to get another photo. This one you can hear the babies better ... and the mom is feeding them this time rather than the dad.

Well, that is about all I got for today. Mom and I are about to start a house project together - painting the kitchen. She has to get it all finished soon.... you will know why later :)

So, did you eat those birds? That's what happens to any bird that flies into my yard! That turkey could have fed you for days!

Oh, how COOL! Birdies EVERYwhere! I heard the ones in the second vid best, just like you said. How cool!
Mom said we'll try to take pix of the birdie babies this weekend. She doesn't want us to disturb them, though! They have very protective parents.

Woo! You should share some of your Canidae with that turkey so you can fatten him up and.....oh....well...nevermind. I was just sayin - Thanksgiving is going to be here before you know it.

We think that turkey was traveling so fast so it could get wherever it was going for Thanksgiving. Probably into hiding.

The bluebirds aren't as meaty but they'll do in a pinch. Guess you weren't hungry?

We have never seen a bluebird before so now we know how it looks like.

Pretty blue on that birdie! I don't think I've ever seen a Sibe that color. I wonder why not?
