Enough's ENOUGH!!!!!!

What was cute and beautiful is now ugly and crappy! As I was sitting here in my chair catching up on the morning news, a beautiful little bluebird sat on the arm of the external sideview mirrors of the motorhome. He seemed intrigued by his reflection and interested in meeting the little bird in the mirror. He was joined by his mate, a smaller, less colorful female and together they alternated sitting on the wiper blades and desperating trying to connect with the bird in the mirrors.

Well, I have often times seen people cover their mirrors with bags and I always assumed it was due to glare from the sun. Not so, it seems. It is to keep birds from attacking the mirrors. I must say, I have never seen this until now.

Now two hours later, the mirror is almost obliterated by bird snot and they have pooped all over the arm and the wiper blades. Looks like we will be getting out the hose and washing down those parts before we take off. They are now coming at the side door. . . where is that owl? I guess we need to carry one. We did also see two beautiful red birds here as well. From the looks of the bird houses around the pond, the owner wants to attract these small beautiful birds.

We will be leaving in about an hour. I put a load of clothes in this morning and we are waiting for it to dry. We don't have a long drive this morning, so I took the opportunity to catch up on the laundry.

Till next time. . .

Oh yes they do that. We have one crazy female cardinal who comes at all our windows year after year. You shoo her away from one, she just comes to the next one. Over and over for about a week. Once mating season is done, she is sitting on her nest and then gone.
