Birds....

... many thanks to Mark from over at KOTGD for proclaiming my humble blog 'excellent'..... and not just excellent for any ole reason.... but excellent for my poignant ruminations!..... so thank you kindly, Mark...... I'm honored..... you're pretty damn excellent yourself!....

... in other news, I am insanely happy to report that my birdfeeder has achieved nuthatch!.... indeed, four new species showed up today.... a White-Breasted Nuthatch, a Red-Bellied Woodpecker, a Dark-Eyed Junco, and a Downy Woodpecker...... so, along with the titmice, finches, cardinals, blue jays, and chickadees, our tally of local tree-flitting varmints (who have dined at the feeder) be currently holding at 9.... of course, there are other birdies that don't like seed, but I'm not counting them.....

.... and since I know that you rubberneckers 1.) Don't really believe me, and 2.) Are just all over yourselves with excitement to actually see proof of the existence of these tiny creatures, here you go..... this, ladies and gentlemen, is a Tufted Titmouse feeding frenzy with a couple of Carolina Chickadees thrown in for spice..... the chickadees are the ones with the round, whitish heads..... the pointy-headed ones are the titmice.....

....... I tell you, boys and girls, I truly never knew that a small pile of nuts could focus the attention of so many beasts....... those birds were just plain mental.....

Bullshit So Far

Man, I had a case of the poignant ruminations, once. Got a salve from my doctor, cleared it right up.

I think I shot a poignant rumination one time...but I never could find anything but the blood trail..

I bought a Poignant Rumination off a little old French lady once cause it looked like a cream puff. Let me tell you, boy. The French can't build cars for shit.

Bird brain. I can't believe I watched that video. Swingin' seed, indeed.

I knew a Rumination family back home. Wonder if this Poignant Rumination is any relation to Jehosephat Rumination, who was the second cousin of the yardman who cut my second grade teacher's brother Mustafa's lawn.

We had a heifer once that couldn't get poignant but through artificial rumination.

I'm wondering if that's kinda like this...

A nation populated by Rumins? Check their Green Cards.

Wow. I'm truly impressed with the number of ways that phrase was comically bandied about. And I needed a chuckle this morning.

You're welcome, Eric, it's the truth is all.

Question for you:

Do you pronounce it "nut-THatch" or nut-Hatch"?

You realize Bou is going to have a fit when she sees this? I'm thinking I may have to put up a feeder just to add to the fun. Then again, I think it would require me to get rid of the vultures first. Sigh. And yes, Happy dog is still alive and kicking.
