Darn you, Tippi Hedron


I have this water feature in my backyard beside my patio. I find it relaxing when I sit and ponder life, work, or the cigar I’m smoking.

Every bird in the Mudsock zip code seems to think the thing is their personal water fountain and bath tub. I have to routinely fill it with fresh water and clean out the filter on the pump because, well, they are dirty filthy nasty birds. 

What is the thanks I get for giving our avian friends access to water?

This, on my patio door:

Splattered through the screen.

Stupid birds.

Happy Summer!

Birds doing what birds do.

Put a plastic snake or two around your water and back door. Birds quit sitting on the railing when I put one on a plant or two. I like birds but not putting my hand in their presents as I struggle to stay upright. Enough birds come by that I still have nature out the window. Fake snakes work to keep birds away from tomatoes and blueberries you might like to raise to eat.
