The birds are coming

Early this morning we looked out the back door and there were two ducks on the frozen water on top of our swimming pool cover.   Every spring we have a few stray ducks that think they can get away with invading the home of three alert golden retrievers.  Boy do we set them straight in a hurry.   We ran out the dog door before the biped could take a second picture and we made those ducks "duck". 

That reminded the bi-ped that with spring coming on, the fishing birds migrating north will try to catch the koi and goldfish in the pond. Most springs the bi-ped has relied on Bella and I to be outside at sunup when the fishing birds arrive, we have fun chasing them off. They are slow to take off and we have come close to catching several. This year with Bella and I sleeping later, the bi-ped bought a fake bird. Apparently fishing birds will not treaspass on one anothers territory, and they must be dumb if they think that fake bird is real. If I can't chase off the fake bird, I can pull it out and tear it up on the lawn.    Just wait till after dark when the bi-ped can't see me.

  1. Mogley;
    We love you, you made us laugh today, maybe if you and Bella are sleeping late the biped can get a couple of fake Golden Retrievers to hang out by the pond.....BOL

  2. Hey Mogley,
    We like Shelia and Bob's idea about fake GRs being posted at the Koi pond. You can name them Bogley and Mella; that's a play on Mogley and Bella. Of course birds are stupid; haven't you ever used the expression "you birdbrain?" Don't you have any fosters that can stand the early morning watch to help earn their keep?

    Happy St. Patrick's Day!

  5. Tee-hee - we don't have many migratory birds here in the valley, we wish we could enjoy some of their splendor with you, Mogley!
