Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

Let's make it OFFICIAL!
The DOG is the official Manuka of the Rickeybird Scrapbook.
A brief anthology and theme song...



And there you have it!

Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

Annnnnnnnnnnnnnd... speaking of interlopers...

-----------------------------------------------------



The other morning, this baby crow (see the bluish eyes and scruffy, round body?) was hanging out on our front porch after having fledged, and flapped, flightless, from the nest. His parents were never far, feeding him and squawking to him. He left a huge selection of poops on the porch, which my ol' man had to hose off much later. It's usually best to leave everything alone as Nature works things out. Sure enough, in the afternoon, he flew to a nearby branch. Now he's high in the trees somewhere.
These photos were all through a window.

I just HAD to channel the Rickeybird for his birdly advice...

Ahhh, The Rb is such a generous soul.

I named the little visitor "Nineteen"... get it? Corvid 19???
SOMEBODY left a familiar-looking poop on the porch this morning. I like to think it was my little buddy Nineteen.

I wanted you all to meet him!

Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

I swear, this "chick" flapped around all over our porch for the better part of the day before he flew off. There was more poop than I ever saw in my life. It was evvvvvvvvvvverywhere, steps, patio furniture, railings, everywhere. Took me an hour to power wash everything clean.
You're welcome, Nineteen. Don't come back to thank me.

Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

Awwwwww little 19! So cute! It also reminds me of my favorite uncle and my cousin, who are cattle farmers. I wanted to know what all of the calves were named. Well. Apparently you don’t name them. They called them by the numbers on their ear tags. “That one there is little nine.”

Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

I'm see this guy as 19+ as the other is clearly 19-

The parents had clearly taking good care of the little guy. Proof provided by volume! Carry onward 19+

Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

Thank you, dear friends, dear LaM and Inger (I LOVE that story!) and Boatsie!

Good grief, Rival (aka my ol' man) has done nothing but kvetch about the poop!

I tell you, it was GLORIOUS! There were gigantic plops of poop absolutely everywhere, pooling on the steps, splashing on the ramparts, streaming down the walls, meandering in and out of the furniture nooks and crannies... proclaiming to the world that this was a well-fed, healthy, robust young corvid!

And the surprise plop yesterday was such a welcome souvenir!

Yessssssssssssssssss, GLORIOUS!
