Fleeing Fugitives

This week started off with a hint of “Police File” investigations. Familiar sounds – usually heard in prison, I mean cages! – emanating from the tree tops surrounding our house. Well, what do you know!?? Two fleeing fugitives caught in my camera sights…. Barney Blue and Yam Yam Yellow! Don’t know where they escaped from, but are now having either long soliloquy cheep-chats with bored pigeons or flitting at high speed from one tree to another and using our bird sanctuary as their devious hideout. Extra bonus – free lunch with the eeps!

Well, I saw Barney Blue first and he was alone. Yam Yam Yellow (she??) mysteriously joined him today, so I have a feeling that Barney Blue went back to release Yam Yam Yellow from the slammer.

Good on ye, Barney! Two happy boids and a blank cheque of FREEDOM!! Don’t worry – you are in good hands here with us!

Weird… our regular Sunbird is acting suspiciously like Columbo at the mo’! Checking out these shifty rapscallions on his beat!

Well, happy gardening xxxx

Country living is the best! Being a true spirit of the earth, my garden is all about vegetables and fruit trees and herbs and chickens roaming free. I was keen to really start gardening when we moved to Philadelphia in 2005, but not your typical suburban-type garden – sterile and bug-free! I wanted an edible garden.

Thanks my friend! It is so funny to watch them interacting with the other birds. They try so hard to make friends with the weaver bird and the pigeon! 🙂
