Stalking Robins

Hello, everyone!  It's me, Cammie.  This morning's walk was for the birds!  Literally, not figuratively!  Mostly Robins, and they were everywhere!  Mom always loves seeing birdies, Dad certainly loves the kind of birdies he gets on the golf course, and Maggie and I have been known to show interest in birdies as well!  Especially Robins!

Let's take a look!  We got mighty close to this one:

"... Stalking Robins, tweet, tweet, tweet..."
"We're stalking Robins!  Tweet, tweety-tweet!..."

He flew off at the last minute!

We heard a lot of birdies along the Hudson Trail, but didn't get close to any:

"I can hear them, I just can't see them!"
"They're all OVER the place today!"

And THEN... when we got a bit closer to home ... I got one!

"Mags!  Check it out!  I got a birdie!!!"

"Oooh!  Good get, Cam!"

I'm not sure what kind it was.

"Hmm... it reminds me of Foghorn Leghorn's sidekick.  You know, that Henery Hawk dude."

Editor's note:  Here's a link, for those who may not have had the same TV viewing experiences as a certain someone did around here.  Ahem.

Anyway ... I don't think it was him, but it was still a cool discovery!  Who knew we'd actually get a birdie today?!!?  It was very exciting!

Cammie!

  11. Very cool find, Maggie!!! We have been stalking morning doves on our walks, they seem to let us get very close and then fly away in a split second. What's up with that anyway? Very rude in our opinion.

    Happy St. Paddy's Day

  12. Awww, the robin didn't want to talk to you? At least you found a bird that would sit still! :-)
