Poor baby

As I was sitting here sipping my first cup of coffee this morning and pondering what I am going to do today, I hear a loud thump. I get up and look out the window to see this sweet little guy sitting on the top of my fierce hunter's house (note FH's house is sitting on our porch swing because he enjoys getting rocked to sleep). This little guy kept flying into the screen door and getting knocked down each time. I go into panic mode because I know who is probably lurking around the corner, waiting to pounce on this sweet baby.

So it's "Becky to the rescue"! Out the back door I go and this really terrifies the poor thing. He starts flying into the screen and trying his best to escape. He finally ends up in a fake ficus tree that I had thrown out earlier in the year.


Look at him, I bet his little heart is beating out of his chest, as is mine, because I know any minute you know who is going to show up and try to get in on the action. I open the back door and shoo him out just as FH rounds the corner.



Yeah.......I know, he looks harmless. He is the most adorable cat known to man kind......but to harmless little birds, he's known as.........the FIERCE HUNTER!!!!


You guys go out and have yourself a blessed day!

Pretty exciting morning at your house! Too Funny about your fierce hunter...they can look SO sweet, but it's just in their nature to chase little birdies!

Hi there! I'm another Becky and I found you through Mildred's blog. We have a small screened porch and birds often get caught in there. Wrens have found ways to come in and out and often 'roost' in there, but others aren't as smart! I've caught and released doves, cardinals, titmice, goldfinches, and other birds. I talk really sweet to them, calm them down, catch them, hold them a minute and talk some more, then release them. It's such a thrill to me! You can read a story of one of my bird adventures here >>> http://camelliacottagediary.blogspot.com/2009/12/tale-of-twelve-feathers.html

Blessings, Becky in GA

We have birds who will roost in the wreath on the front door. So the other night one flew in the house as we opened the door. It is hard to get them out because we have very high ceilings. It was late so I shut our bedroom door and went on to bed. The next day I opened the kitchen door and birdie flew outside to freedom! Crazy little bird!!

Glad to see you back posting! We still have alot of snow!

Hi Becky! Oh, look at that little bird! Probably needed to get in out of the cold. Thanks for your sweet comments.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia;)
