THE MENAGERIE

There is no shortage of animal entertainment around the Casa. While enjoying a nice cock-a-tail and cigar on late Friday night a fox was spotted and sat and stared me down for some time, before running off. He was fun to see. I would love to have a fox as a pet!!!! But on the usual menagerie....... Buster is currently at his city house with the Ex Boy-Toy. Now mind ya, when Buster is at the Casa, he leads the life of Riley, but apparently when at the city house he has no problems putting his ears up and doing some house work....... 
  
 
 But rather then doing the laundry, it looks more like he is pressing the laundry....
 
 
On the Bonnie and Clyde front, it's more like Bonnie and Clyde plus two!!!! I had been looking for a nest, and knew they had to be close as I hear the cooing all the time. Sure enough....... 
 
 
Right on top of the meter box was a flimsy nest with two juvenile ones. Lately.... it's been Bonnie and Clyde and one of the brod feeding on the window sill. Either the other flew the coop already or a neighborhood cat got one...I hope it's the first choice. All the bird's are getting used to my presence, and never leave the window, even if I venture right up to the window. The youngest has even perched and slept for a period of time.

 
Many other birds visit the sill, including a Blue Jay, sparrows, a loud Cow Bird and my red house finch. I haven't seen to many yellow this year yet. I hope they return soon.

 
 
 And then there's the Casa du Borghese's Squirrel Patrol......Bouvier! Searching and enjoying the nuts I leave around.

  3. Abby says you are in grave danger from The Squirrel. But she also has a similar complaint of nuts being left out for the enemy.
