Tattle-Tale Tuesday

Just because I am an indoor kitty doesn't mean I don't know what's going on in the rest of the neighborhood.

The house next door is for sale. No beans have lived there for almost a year. Every few days metal masheens pull into the driveway, and beans go for a walk around inside, then the get back in their masheens and go away.

The house needs a little work. The hole you see in the wall next to the window is a hole for a dryer vent. The hole has no cover, making it a great spot for a small family to move in. I think this is Mrs Bird. She and Mr Bird fly to the nest a lot, but didn't let Mom take their picture until this past weekend.
Mr and Mrs Bird have two young chicks who can be VERY noisy when they are hungry. They chirp a lot at breakfast and dinnertime.
Mrs Bird has to go food hunting several times a day.
The little chicks have big appetites, and very little patience.
Mom and I both hope the Bird family will have left the nest before the house is sold, so they can find a new home before they get evicted. Mom seems to be pretty sure new bean owners might not be so happy to share their house with Mr and Mrs Bird and the little Chirps.

Dunno why.

That's a cool special edition of Bird TV! Hopefully, even if the house does get sold, escrow will go on long enough for the baby birds to grow up and take off on their own.

Well Millie, I can see distinct parallels between the chicks and you, to be honest. Your mom has to go day hunting for about 8 hours every day, and I suspect that you can be pretty noisy at breakfast and dinner time.

The good news is that you're not under any threat of eviction. Yaaay.

Mum checks to see if we have fevver nests in place she would not prefer. So far they have been good.

We have nests in our carport every year! Mom lets them stay and we watch them. One year a snake got up the shelves and ate the baby birds. Mom was sad. We hope your neighbor baby birds will fly away soon!!
Happy Wednesday!
