The last thing this poor girl ever saw

robin2

Okay, not really. Just a photobomb. (Video at the link).

This is a European robin, Erithacus rubecula, like the one I posted about last week. If you read the text, they’re all awwwing and cooing and wishing they had something to feed the adorable robin.

I guarantee you, if we could speak robin, that little thug is tweeting something like, “hey! HEY! I didn’t authorize you to take pictures! Come over here and I’ll mash your beak in for you, you big pink pansy!”

What would it be like to be a belligerent, psychopathic asshole trapped in the body of a tiny adorable feathery tennis ball?

Shoot.
isn’t it going to be about the same as being a belligerent psychopathic asshole black female dolphin trapped in the fluffy body of an elderly white European male?

In which case I can tell you personally.

I have a pretty Carolina wren that showed up last year and settled in my garage. It’s hilarious watching the little 5″ puff tail-flicking and scolding everyone and everything that moves. I put up a wren box for him just today – nailed on the outside of the garage, away from the doors. I hope he finds and likes it, and I hope this year I won’t be randomly dive-bombed when I go to my car.

Awwww…a Carolina wren actually looks like a robin.

I was once chased through the forest by a whole gang of little chickadees.

I have a Carolina wren living the palm tree beside my patio. Little dude sure can belt out a song. But all the neighborhood birds are in the throes of courtship, so it’s noisy out there.

I was attacked by a crow in my driveway yesterday. It had grown fond of some laundry that was hanging to dry and I tried to shoo it with a broom. It attacked the broom, landed on my van, and when I approached it leaped off the van and bit my nose rather quickly. It was fool enough to hang around and now it’s dead. So my answer to your question “What would it be like to be a belligerent, psychopathic asshole trapped in the body of a tiny adorable feathery tennis ball?” is DEAD.

Hope your nose is okay, Bob, and I hope you don’t mind I’m kind of on Team Crow here. RIP, you magnificent bastard.

Change “feathery tennis ball” to “furry meatloaf,” and the answer is simple: a cat.

As a general rule, so am I. But it’s a matter of territoriality. When I’m on Mr. Crow’s turf, I respect his sovereignty. But if he attacks me on my turf, he can expect a decisive defense!

Lucy’s sort of sexy in a kooky way, isn’t she?

Actually, I suspect that poor robin was just trying to warn her out of the way of that lorry speeding down the road towards her, filled with hundreds of illegal alien terrorists who want nothing more than to rape her and those other girls. Because, after all, that be their “culture”. And you must never forget that all cultures are equal!

@Deborah HH “so it’s noisy out there.”

The woodland frogs are out of hibernation, horny and vocal…early evening sounds like B horror flick soundtrack.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
