People sometimes say something like When Pigs Fly, but I think the yellow finches that are visiting us are pigs.
They have gone thru 40 pounds of black oil sunflower seeds in four days, and even come to the feeders that are hanging while I am filling others.
The humming birds are not much help. They buzz around me while I am filling the feeders.
The wood peckers seem to be even more bold. A mom, dad, and at least 3 young-uns land on the feeder I am filling.
The wood peckers seem to like the humming bird nectar but I realized that that were after the bees and ants that were taking a sugar bath.
Sounds like a lot of fun to me.
Fred...same here but we'll add one more to the fleet...Orioles! Now there's one bird that can suck down the orange marmalade...8 jars in two months! Love 'em but we're kinda glad they went back down south.
I think birds are worse than pigs! Pigs poop in one place and birds crap on everything!!!!!!!! I like to see the geese raise their little ones around our 1 1/4-1 1/2 acre pond but watch your step!! Bud.
That sure sounds like a load of crap to me.
I spray for birds and frogs every spring.
I forgot to mention the morning doves that feed on the seed that is on the ground.
Their wing make a funny squeak when they take off.
Burger....you kill frogs???
Don't you ?
All that cute frog business. Making all that noise ! Next thing up is children
laughing and playing. There should be a law !
Much better to have roaring traffic, passing cars with thumping stereos, or
best of all, neighbors with dogs that bark all day long at the passing clouds,
a breeze moving the tree limbs, distant noises ....
Have you ever considered living on the Moon?
The best are the little foreign fart cars with that pathetic noise coming out of their back ends.
Or the F350 diesel fords with the incinerator stacks sticking up out of the front of the box and blowing black crap out on an unsuspecting world.
The absolute worst are the fifteen 3 year old brats and their screaming while they ride their stupid little bikes with their stupid plastic training wheels up and down the stupid street while the stinking, barking, ugly, stupid, little, neighborhood dogs bark incessantly throughout the day.
And then there's the airplane flying up and down the potato field across the road spraying liquid chemical fertilizer, some kind of genetically acceptable Agent Orange and altered DDT potato bug repellent all over my vehicles and house and those noisy damn kids.
Did I mention those damn brats?
Mike, Have you seen his Desoto? I think he came from the moon. scott
Oh, that's a Desoto? Well so much for those Fabulous Fifties. Is it any wonder why the dogs are barking.
Actually I saw a picture of his Desoto a few weeks back. Pretty dang worthy!
Michael Garrison...I have remedy for that.
Cement in both ears..hahaha.
Of course it's all in fun..................right?
GET OFF MY LAWN!!!
Oh wait, I don't have a lawn. . . .
Scott Owens, were you talking to me about the Desoto?
Oops, sorry, most of the time I'm Mike. I'll go back to being Michael.
Scott Owens, were you talking to me about the Desoto?
-btw, too many happy people here!
Now I'm feeling insignificant.
You Fella's can call me Simon!
I loathe pigs...I think they should all be eaten!
No Mike, you're Mike. I realized I didn't see the Desoto. What I saw was a Dodge Coronet. So it's okay! You're Mike! I swear.
The Simon Mike or the Mike Michael?
What's my name supposed to be???
Yes, yeah, okay, yup!
Yes, Ladies and Gentlemen, I believe it's time once again for the infamous Frank Harris "Smiling Pig".
Take it Frank!
It's probably been sprayed.
He flaps his wings and flys (although its in circles)
So does a cow with Mad Cow Disease.
It's from the sprayin..I tells ya!
Speaking of frogs, this thread has become seriously derailed.
This is a Frog!
Mike Esik, No I was not talking about you. Scott
Both are frogs. The one above is a rerailing frog .... carried on many steam era locomotives for
minor derailments fixes. Hence the comment about a derailed thread.
But that frog pic is pointless!!! We've managed to get on the side track here, eh??
What Burger described last night sounds like the "good life" to me. Beats the alternative.
Fred, we have the morning doves too, it's weird how their wings squeak. I guess they missed the memo on the 2,000 flap grease job!
Fred, you are lucky. We are only able to feed birds Nov 1st to March 1st, because of bears.
W C Fields once said: "A man who hates kids and dogs can't be all bad." (He said it - I didn't)!
My wife works from home. She has one of those suet bird feeders just outside her office window. She and the cat love to look out the window at the cardinals on the feeder. Only problem is keeping enough of those suet cakes on hand to keep from running out. We found a recipe on line to make your own, but it calls for lard. Tried finding lard in a modern grocery store lately?
I found a way to keep the raccoons, bear (there is one hanging around Newfields) and squirrels out of the feeder - it is a $31.99 electric fence charger from Tractor supply.
It is surprising how quickly they learn to stay away!
The raccoon and Bear got the message real quick!
The squirrels don't inform their buddies so we put it back up when the neighboring squirrels come to visit.
Hal - we get the suit cakes from Walmart at less than a buck each in the eight pack.
We have doves, bluejays and cardinals feeding and fighting the squirrels. Funny how regardless of what we feed them they crap white on my black car and black on Steph's light colored car.
Doves must have two butt holes...
Hmm, I don't think any of those birds can match a Peacock! We had a Pea-hen "adopt" us for a while. Was nice having her around because she kept snakes, etc. away (they seem to hate snakes), and she was a funny bird; if you were doing something outside, she would come over and watch--as long as you ignored her! Turn to her, and off shed run. BUT she pooped everywhere, BIG poops too!! Liked to climb up on things too--the house, the truck, etc. etc.
Just disappeared one day.
Haven't seen the 8 pack. We've been going to Lowes and they just have singles. I think they are $1.70 or so each there. I have to say I don't get to Walmart very often, just on principle, but an 8 pack does sound enticing.
I had six Cardinals show up at my feeder but then the Pope came and chased them all away!
Christmas Tree Shops have suet for around a buck a cake - the "no melt" suet is about $1.15. BTW Dennis - the bird was named for the Catholic Cardinals. I wonder why...
@ Dennis Seth- LOL!
My wife runs the welfare office for the birds and squirrels.
Maybe I could borrow some of Burger's frogs (the ones left alive) to get after the crickets that have invaded my house. When I go to bed I have to pretend I'm camping!!!
Suet - if you are also buying something else on Amazon, I saw a 10 or 12 pack as an "add-on" for less than $7.
. . All of you guys make us laugh
.............. . You guys make me sick !
I'm very happy I joined the Comedy forum....er Model T Forum.
Well Frank, that isn't the smiling oinker I was expecting but, that'll do Frank, that'll do.
That pig looks like me after the last deep-sea fishing trip I took.
You have nice teeth.
I'm remembering now that years ago we were visiting my folks in Kona and we took a trip to Hilo. The frogs outside the motel room in Hilo were so loud we had to close the windows to sleep!
We get frogs here on Dewey Mountain, but they're not that loud!!
Dave, the frogs are just as loud it's your hearing that isn't as good!
What??? Speak up, stop mumbling!!!
