Psycho Bird And The Giggling Kids

Earlier this morning I kept hearing a dull sound, kind of like hammering. It sounded like when the kids play in the basement and run into one of the poles. With a hockey stick or puck, not ususally a body.

Finally this afternoon I mentioned it to the kids. They said it was just the people next door working on the house (that is being built, but is pretty much finished). I told them there was no one there, since I'd just been to get milk and didn't see anyone.

So I sent Sparky down to the basement "just to check and see if there was anything weird going on down there."

She found a robin pecking on one of the two windows. The video is from a little digital camera into the light so the quality isn't the best, but you can definitely see and hear well enough.

Hubby said it sees itself and thinks it's another bird and is vying for supremacy.

Caboose thinks it sees the Christmas tree and wants in.

The cat is thrilled beyond comprehension and hopes it gets in!

That's exactly where the term 'bird brain' comes from ! ;)

Are you OK? As you have not posted for a while I have to say I am a bit concerned. Ah don't you love pastoral care from a distance? Hope all is well.
