We have Doves—Mourning and Ring-necked and once in a special while white Doves.
We have Pheasant and Quail and some other types of birds who run lickity split and scatter all over the farm.
We also have those Giant birds—Canada Geese and Sandhill Cranes.
While speaking of birds: There are Owls, Hawks (all shapes and sizes),
and once in a great while Eagles. Not very often Eagles, but there has been one or two who land in the old Weeping Willow trees.
Then we have all those delicious, oops, little birds: Robins,
Western Meadowlarks, Finches of all sorts, all types of Sparrows, Barn Swallows, the list is so big and so long I can’t tell you all of them.
AND there are the Hummingbirds! Now, if I really want to get in trouble, all I have to do is stalk a hummingbird.
Mom said she isn’t going to feed the birds (any birds) because I am a tad naughty about birds.
I don’t see how I’m naughty—really, I don’t.
and what Mom says goes.
So, I have to change my diet to a ‘clean’ diet forgoing BIRDS!!!
Only mice from now on out for me.
