Birdie and Boy
I haven,t actually given her a name as such ,I dont think wild animals or birds should be given names , but I do usually say " Hello Birdie ! "
She loves grapes .
This was her nesting place last year in our woodshed ....this year she is in a bush on the front wall of our neighbour's garden . I hope its going to be O.K .there .
Here is dad , the male Blackbird , to whom I say " Hello my Boy ! "
He has been coming to me for grapes for several years now. Actually they both fly down to me as soon as I take out my garden fork , for slugs , snails , grubs and worms . As I lift and move my flowerpots and tubs , they dive in to take any woodlice hiding there .
I think my Birdie much prefers grapes .....and will come in and help herself if the door is left open .
