Bird Watching

We must attract crazy animals.

Missy and Oski are two of the dumbest, craziest, most lovable dogs out there. We are constantly laughing at (with, beside, near) them.

Added to the crazy animal mix is the dumbest bird on earth. At the back of our living room is a wall of windows. (One of the reasons we fell in love with this house.) It's not surprising that a bird would mistake the reflection of the sky in our window for the great outdoors and hit the window.

What would be surprising is to have the same bird hit the window over, and over, and over, and over.....

This bird will hit the window. Go to the patio table two feet away and then hit the window again. Then fly to the next window, and hit the window. You get the picture. This will continue for quite some time.

Now, add to this mix our surly Oski dog. He will hear the tap/thump and run to the window, bark a warning of "you get out off my property, grumble, grumble" and then go back to his bed. He reminds us of a grumpy old man. He will do this EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. the bird hits the window.

It makes for a very enjoyable morning. I have sat with my Diet Coke and watched this "show" for many mornings now.
