Blue coo

meldy_nva(z6b VA)June 21, 2011

The other morning I was sitting on the top step, finishing a glass of milk while contemplating the baby grape clusters on the arbor beside me. Two doves flew over and perched on a nearby vine, cooing and chortling to each other while obviously inspecting me as I drank my milk. I wonder what they were saying... perhaps...

Dovea: Oh, look at the beautiful blue beak!

Doveb: Featherless ones don't have beaks.

Dovea: Oh, it's just gorgeous with the sun shining on it.

Doveb: Featherless ones don't have beaks.

Dovea: Well, you can see that this featherless one has a beeyootiful blue beak.

Doveb: Featherless don't have beaks.

Dovea: Just look at it! Such a lovely blue bea--Awk! Awk!

Doveb: Featherless don't have --Squawk!!

[I set my glass down on the step beside me. The two doves flew away.]

Dovea: That was such a pretty blue beak.

Doveb: Until it fell off.

There was some trash talking on my balcony yesterday afternoon. A visiting bird (type undetermined) landed on one of my window boxes and proceeded to cuss a blue streak at my kitties, who were safely indoors on the other side of the screen. The bird/cat back & forth went on for a couple of minutes. At that point I guess he decided to give my cats the last word because he flew off in a huff.

Nature can be so much fun!

This morning we had some crows talking very loudly about something in our yard. It turns out they were talking about some very nice earth worms in my soil. A whole flock came in and had a feast.

Sometimes it would be nice to be Dr. Dolittle. On the other hand, we might hear some uncomfortable information about ourselves or how they have trained us.
