Last year I posted a thread saying I HATE ROBINS
.... I was being harassed by an evil loud mouth schnook named Rudy the Robin who rudely woke me from a peaceful sleep at 3:am-ish damn too early each morning and SANG. He sang loud and proud and off key trying to wooo some robin red booby breasted beauty to have a whack of kids with him.
He sang for a long long time .... no respectable robin red booby breasted boid wanted poor Rudy.
This morning at 3:47am I lay awake listening to another loud mouth schnook singing the song of its birb people in a tree near my house. HE TOO wants a mate .... he's singing loud and proud and WAY TOO DAMN EARLY for that kind of nonsense.
At first I thought it might be Rudy the Rude - returned to make me miserable when things are pretty strange and miserable these days already! BUT then I thought this might be one of Rudy's kids from last year .... but then I thought NAW .... Rudy sang miserably last year for the entire spring and summer season and then abandoned me to find a mate in another town or city.
I was curious so I crawled outta bed and stood at the window and viewed the quiet streets around me and low and behold at almost 3:45am I witnessed 2 robins flying around in the dark
near a large condo doing the rounds in the parking lot together. They were pulling at worms on the lawn and keeping each other company and they seemed to be happy together.
I didn't hear any more singing but I still stood and watched the pair in the dark go about their business and was amazed that the street lights and the parking lot lights was enough to give these birds the chance to do the early bird special together while they sucked up dew worms happily before 4am.
When I crawled back to bed grumpy and tired and still unable to sleep .... I muttered to myself .... I STILL HATE STOOPY ROBINS.
Oddly it made me sort of happy to realize that SPRING is officially here. When the birbs start singing and looking for love in the wee hours of the morning. SPRING IS HERE!
