If you know me, you know I am not a huge animal lover and I'm pretty sure they don't like me either. This was a affirmed recently when I heard the famous pet owner line "They have never done that before." after my neighbors dog leaped over the wall in between our houses while I was spray painting and bit my foot. Yeah... Anyways, there are very few that people's pets that I don't mind while others I quietly tolerate so people don't have the major "You don't like animals!" freak out. Whatever...either way I could live without all the slobber and licking on me. Its gross.
In recent months I have decided that I do enjoy a pet of a certain kind. Birds...the babies though. Not the mean Mommas who want to peck your head off for even looking at their babies.
|A little while back I happened upon these 2 nests on the front and back porch of our house.|
|Being the dork I am, I anxiously awaited the time for them to hatch!|
|And they did slowly, one at a time!|
|I know this looks gross and ugly and it was but at the same time it was really fun to watch.|
|These were the growing 3 on the back porch...they pooped a lot and destroyed my wreath but oh well. What can you do?|
|I'm pretty sure this last one was the runt of the bunch because it came a day or so later...|
|And shortly after they were gone...tear.|
So, I have decided for now I am going to stick with birds. You don't have to feed them and if you don't mind a little poop on the porch then they are great source of free entertainment. Problem solved...I can now be a "sort of" animal
lover liker. Oh and even better they are one in a matter of weeks and then you get to start watching the fun all over again.
Am I the only one that likes watching baby birds or do I need to own up to my nerdy ways?
