Oh yeah! Spring blooms are popping up all over the garden here! Sorry to my pals who told us they woke up to the shock of the dreaded white stuff haunting the ground this morning at their homes. Here is a peek at what your missing! Jealous? You know it!

I'm not the only one excited. Lots of birds are hanging around our house chirping their happy little song early in the morning! Do you know what that means? Their squawking gets Mom up earlier to feed me! Perfect. I don't have to stand on her chest to demand my morning meal! So far this week we have had visits from blue jays, cardinals, chickadees, and robins. Yes... now about those robins, grrr!
Becky was no help to me at all! She's not fooling me - mischief follows her like ducks in tow behind the Mother duck. She was running around like a demon picking up all the twigs Mr. Robin was dropping. Becky claimed "I am such a sensitive soul worrying about those poor babies so I am gathering twigs to help!" Nonsense I told Mom, look at her snacking on that branch hiding in the kitchen! The girl needs to grow up and develop a passion for delicacies like pine cones.
Sadly, we really did need to take down the robins nest for the birds safety and ours. Mom said from start to finish Mr. Robin had only spent about 2 hours building it before night fell. So when Mr. Robin had gone off to bed Dad took the nest down. The next morning Mr. Robin was on the fence and confused as can be. He kept staring at the spot where his nest used to be.
Mom let me out to bark and cause a commotion. Hey I am good at that! He got the point, this was not a very safe place for his babies. He built a great new nest in no time in the large pine tree in our yard. MUCH safer spot Mr. Robin and I promise to keep an eye out for Becky when it's time for your babies to learn to fly!
Sigh. Equilibrium has been restored to my backyard.
What's that? Who goes there! Oh dear, does this Easter Bunny not know anything?
- We aren't allowed chocolate
- Becky is faster than a hare!
Here we go again... ALERT MOMMY. INTRUDER. HOME INVASION.
