Gypsy Jabbers: Bird Dog

I see the bird. 
I see it in the tree.  
I see a bird on a nest in the tree. 
I see baby birds in the nest with the mama bird. 
I know they are there.
They don't fool me when they sit like statues.
I want the birds. 
I could be a mama bird. See?! 
I can sit still for hours and hours and hours. 
Just like you are doing, Mama Dove. 
I have as much patience as you do. 
Maybe more.
I have hair that can keep baby birds warm. 
Let me up there to take care of your babies.
Better yet, why don't you come down here.
I can take care of you.
Heh, heh heh!

And you thought I was a herding dog!

If you 'biggify' the picture you can see
two chicks squabs in front of mama's breast.


  1. I'm not entirely sure that Gypsy would be a mama bird. . .hahaha! I am pretty sure she would gobble those birds up!
    She sure is cute staring so intently at them though :)

  2. Dove TV for Gypsy! Chance has Turkey TV and Squirrel videos:)

  3. I'm keeping you right in my sights!!! Great photo and poem!

  4. Loved the pictures and the poem! We had a pair of doves nest on our deck several years back. It was amazing to watch the baby develop. Only one egg hatched; the other fell out somehow. Gypsy is definitely focused! Have a good one!

  5. Oh, Gypsy, you better leave that mama bird alone!

  6. Gypsy, Gypsy, Gypsy. You are not fooling me.


What thoughts do you have?

Home Away from Home

We sold the house we owned in Point Richmond a few years ago. It was a beautiful home and location, but it wasn't convenient for visitin...
