It was hard enough to believe the first time, then today it nearly happened again.
Last year Toby found a newly fledged bird on the ground. He was so startled that his eyes grew wide and his mouth fell open. The bird was startled as well and tried to fly, and he did…right into Toby’s mouth. Toby coughed out the bird, but unfortunately it died. (These were some rough sketches I did to remember the day.)
Today I opened the front door only to have a little bird come in and once again try to fly into Toby’s mouth. In his mind, catching birds must be the easiest thing in the world.
I must have chased that little bird for half an hour trying to get it to go outside. When it first came in it could only hop. By the end, it was starting to fly in earnest.
When I went to prop open the door to shoo the baby bird out, I found this.
A sibling waiting to come in and join the fun.
If you would like a little birdie for your house, consider adding this Chicken and Eggs Stitched Bread Cloth to your decor. Homemade, warm, crusty bread (or breads you claim are homemade!) presented on a beautifully decorated bread cloth will taste even better when served to guests.
Chicken and Eggs Bread Cloth is available from my shop.
Mmm! Tastes like chicken. Ask your Mom to pop it on the grill.
Seems a shame to fire up the grill for such a tiny morsel. Just have it as sparrow tartare.
When last I saw them, they were fluttering toward the rhododendron. Hopefully they will get to grow up and be happy! 🐦
THE BIRD DOG OF ALCATRAZ !!!!!!!!!!!
I HAVE A ROOSTER THEMED KITCHEN BUT DADLY NO CHICXKENS RIGHT NOW. !
Just add a few chickens and before you know it your kitchen will be filled with eggs!
😱 Please tell me both birdies made it back to the nest unscathed!
Must be the week for birds.
Uh oh. What happened?
Short version on my post Unholy.
I think that was Geordie causing mischef.
Ha! I hadn’t thought of that, but he certainly would enjoy teasing Toby.
Oh my word!
And the word was “Cheep”!
Oh, gosh! Who declared your home Baby Birds Welcome Home! Ha! 😀
I hope they both survive AND Toby wasn’t too disappointed that he didn’t get bird for supper! 😉
I don’t know what’s up with these crazy birds! Toby got to share some of my fish 🐠 for supper, so hopefully he’s not too disappointed. 😆
YAY for fish!!! 🙂
