Lest you think my life is boring, let me tell you about the saga that has been going for several weeks, several times a day.
A bird who whistles like a wolf whistle in the big tree in front throws itself against the window that is in the photo above. It might be my fault........to some extent. When I heard its whistle, I whistled back for a couple of days. Again, I thought it was funny. Now I think the bird thinks its mate is on the other side of the window! Who knows? I do not whistle back anymore.
Initially when it started, and I mean it is not once or twice, it goes on for about fifteen minutes two or three times a day, I thought it might be that the silver balls on the chest inside the window were the attraction. So I closed the curtains for a week. Nope, that did not stop it!
Matilda and I sat and watched it one day as it threw its chest against the window over and over and over. Matilda used the term annoying........
Even more interesting is the fact that the bird comes at the exact same time every day. The first time is 8:15AM. Eventually I leave the bedroom with my cane to tap on the window so it will fly off. Now it spots me as I come out the door and takes off for the big tree. Then it comes back at 4:15PM!
I'm not making this up. It is the SAME time every day. Then there is another shorter attempt about 7PM. If I go and open the screen door, which I do out of the need for self-preservation, it takes off for the big tree and whistles for a while.
I have tried, in vain, to photograph the bird but have not succeeded. It is brownish with a brownish orange chest. Anyone know what it is, besides an angry bird?
Life is always an adventure, even when you are minding your own business, in your own home! Ha.
