    1. Thanks, Dale. No, they don’t normally get along with each other, or amongst their own kind. You should see the aerial combat that goes on sometimes, with feathers flying. And when the squirrel starts, too, chittering from the nearest tree, it’s like the zoo outside my window!

  1. Speaking of bird wars…I was out at the son’s farm yesterday, and saw a rooster take on a peacock for territorial rights, and the roster kicked butt. LOL Great mini battle which ended with fluffed feathers and great posturing.

    Don’t know why I felt the need to share that. LOL Have a great week, dear friend.

    1. LOL. Those roosters can be real tough nuts with a huge amount of attitude. It’s a shame you couldn’t video the fight.

      I’m hoping to have a good week, but I still haven’t finished my novel as the devil must have heard me voicing my intention to do some meaningful work, and, with it being Lent, he made me suffer for it with constant interruptions 😉

      Wishing you all the best, dear friend, too.


    1. If it made you smile, Sylvia, it succeeded 🙂 Those garden birds are quite large from a UK perspective, but nothing like some of the giants in your backyard, who doubtless make twice the volume of noise sometimes!
