That robin had an attitude

April 8, 2009

I don’t know what the deal was, but that robin had a problem with our windows. He kept flying up to the windows and pecking them until dusk on Monday night. He was at it again on Tuesday morning in spite of the fact that I hung out a wind chime to help keep him away. I put it near the corner of the house hoping it would catch more wind; but, alas the only day I’ve ever hoped for wind, there was none.

He — I assume it was a he — kept flying up and pecking his reflection. He never banged into the glass, and would often flutter just outside the window. Of course, this fascinated Opal.

She did take a little time out to box with the plants. But mostly, she stood around and watched for him.

By noon, the robin gave up and Opal was able to catch a quick nap. Life is tough for our little rat terrier.

    Funny, I always lived under the illusion that Opal was a lot smaller ;-))). What a nice photo series. Did you ever think of publishing a doggie newsletter? Might be a money spinner with such a model ;-)).
