The Great Red Hunter

Annoying is the word. Daisy has discovered that birds are everywhere. Every day she pesters me to take her out to the backyard time after time after time. Does she do her business? No, she scours the skys, trees and fences for the winged prey. Anything over her head is fair game. Whether it is a dove or a sparrow, it doesn't matter. Even an occasional squirrel on a tree or the fence is a cause to chase. I, on the other hand, would prefer to attract birds since I have a bird feeder and bird bath back there. I've always loved birds, even my idiot parrot Astro, the loud mouth. Somehow Daisy thinks I am her hunting guide and that at any moment I should drop what I am doing and take her out to sniff out the quarry. I think not little girl. Get over yourself. Lady is laughing at you. You're never gonna get that bird.

I love birds too. They are making good use of the bird bath I put out. It's been so hot lately! Enjoy your day.

I'm a bird lover too. We have a huge feeder, 3 bird houses, and a nice pond out back for the birds. The best investment so far has been the oriole feeder. Apparently they like something close to hummingbird necter, but they crave grape jelly too. Strange, no? Anyway, they're a beautiful bird so I don't mind changing the food every 3 days.
