    They’re passing through here, too. Still waiting on the Robins, though. How about your Rufous Hummingbirds? 🙂

    “No sir. I transported ’em to the Klingon’s engine room, where they’ll be no tribble at all…”

  3. Gary from Jersey says:

    The goldfinch is the NJ state bird. Hang onto your wallet.

  4. JeffS says:

    This is why God gave us .410 shotguns.

  5. tree hugging sister says:

    I HAVE no hummingbirds of any description and thank YOU for reminding me of that painful fact. **sniff** They diss me mightily.

    And that’s exactly what I said to major dad when I saw that first one, Gary. Or, actually, it was, “Take out a loan”. They feed like the Corleone family gone to mattress in that basement scene where they teach Michael how to make spaghetti. Only 12 times a day.

    You KNOW the guy over the back fence is a cop, Jeff.

  6. JeffS says:

    Cop, schmop. You can always claim it was self-defense.

  7. major dad says:

    It is a felony to shoot migratory birds you know besides I like gold finches it’s the damn blackbirds I want to shoot.

  8. tree hugging sister says:

    Plus, we’d probably catch hell for using such small shot. They’re a rough crowd across the way.

  9. Dave E. says:

    You can’t shoot the ones you don’t know either, MD. Unless they’re yummy. 😉

  10. JeffS says:

    OK, OK, no shotgun! Sheesh

    What about stocking up on cats, then? The local pound always a few on hand. The Princes might get upset, but she can compensate by chasing birds AND cats.

  11. Totally off topic here, but any chance you will make glasses like the ones in the header, THS? I’m crazy about celestial motifs, and love your work 🙂
