Lookie Likies



Mum noticed that the blackbird on the stick looked like the outdoor ornament, that we have sitting indoors in our hallway. Mr Blackbird does look tasty, but I can never catch him. We try and feed him and the sparrows though, as they get hungry at this time of year.

  3. Blackbird pie sounds pretty good to me. He is a big guy tho, I still think you will need help catching him.

  4. They do look alike. What a good job you do to make sure all the birdies are fed for the winter.

  7. Yoo will need anovver 23 to bake a pie!

    Sing a song of sixpence a pocket full of rye,
    Four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie.
    When the pie was opened the birds began to sing,
    Oh wasn't that a dainty dish to set before the king?
    The king was in his counting house counting out his money,
    The queen was in the parlour eating bread and honey
    The maid was in the garden hanging out the clothes,
    When down came a blackbird and pecked off her nose!

  8. Mommy said he looks delicious but he may have a family so it's good just to enjoy thinking about catching him. =^..^= but you are so nice to feed the sparrows. They will make great TV viewing for you every day..and good food for the imagination while you look.

  9. Feeding the birds is good, that way they hang around your house and it's fun to watch them.

  10. We feed the birdies too. The squirrels seem to be smarter and I think they get most of the goodies. Mommy likes to watch me talk to them at the window. I talk their language. I "chitter". She thinks it is cute (and I get more Temptations).
    Smoochies to you Poppy,

  13. We feed the birdies (even though the development we live in says we can't).
    We get some quail but not much else. We can feed hummingbirds: mum enjoys them but they are too small and fast for us to really appreciate. You're lucky , dear Poppy.

  14. That's a very lovely birdie photo your mewmmie too. And the 'ornament' is cute, too. We have birdie doorstops but they don't fool us...
