‘Twas the day before Christmas and all through the yard, not a creature was stirring except for…a bird?
Three birds, that is!
Pruning back the hedge bush like giving Zach Galifianakis a Brazilian, I was startled to discover…we we’re not alone.
For just as Zach Galifianakis’ beautician would have been surprised to discover a small Vietnamese family dwelling in his undergrowth, I too discovered a small nest of blackbirds residing in our bush.
Seeing as Santa had given me a heads up regarding the size of a certain gift coming for Indy, it was necessary to make some room in the backyard. Which meant digging out and transplanting a few bushes, but when I happened upon this little feathered family, it was time to down tools.
The last thing any family needs (no matter what colour or kind your plumage), is to be homeless or displaced at Christmas time. So, we’ll make temporary arrangements for the placement of Indy’s gift, at least until these kids are big enough to fly the coop.
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night. (Chirpity-cheep-cheep!)
