Rumor has it ...


Mr. Titmouse:  Hey, House Lady ...  I just stopped in to get a little sunflower seed.

Me:  No problem, help yourself.

Mr. Titmouse:  The supply is getting mighty low here.  By the way, rumor has it that you're leaving town again and if that's the case, are you going to fill this thing up before you leave?




Me:  You are as bad as the squirrels worrying about the food.  Let me remind you that there will be someone here watching over you and making sure your food does not run out.  All will be fine!


Mr. Titmouse:  Great to hear that!  Gotta run now and spread the news!  Those chickadees were driving me crazy with their concerns on how they were going to get fed.

Me:  I know ... they are a worrisome group, aren't they.  By the way (as I shout after Mr. Titmouse) it wouldn't hurt to say "Thank You" once in a while!  ~sigh ~

Oh, those darn birds! Just because they're SO cute doesn't give them permission to not be thankful for such a wonderful provider! Love your captures and dialogue with the feathered ones, Reena! Hope you have a great week! Thanks for the smiles!

TOO cute! And I love his blue feet! I had to stop feeding the birds this summer because all the starlings were coming in flocks and gulping it down, I'm hoping to resume when it gets cold.

He is very cute, although ungrateful!
At least he pauses to pose for photos, no? Do your bird friends fly south for the winter?

LOL the backyard birds are all about their needs this time of year. Just before the cold weather hit this weekend, I needed a traffic director at my feeders.
Especially the sunflower.
Safe travels.
