So, there I was, trying to beat Cori at WordTwist while Penny was asleep in her crate when there came a flutter. And I mean a bigtime whooshwhooshwhoosh flutter.
Yep – bird in the house. (We keep our screenless backdoor open when it’s warm because there aren’t really any bugs to speak of here…) I walked out and there on the transom was one confused male California Quail. Apparently one of our favorite birds decided to come on in and see what was happening.
He made another fluttery flight for the dining room window – which unfortunately for him was closed. THONK! Sorry buddy.
I think that left him scared and/or dazed enough to permit me to get him to hop up onto a broom that I slid out towards him. I slowly moved him to the back again and as soon as I tipped him onto the patio, there was one more big flutter and he was off to the safety of the nearby scrub brush.
So – after yesterday’s snake and today’s quail, I find myself wondering what’s going to happen tomorrow!
