April 29th, 2007

For two days our yard was inundated with these little birds. No exaggeration… there must have been close to 200 of these little feathered friends. At first it was cool… and then creepy thoughts of Alfred Hitchcook set in. I think they were looking for the Chicken Lady.

They were everywhere. A sea of birds. They even went into the chicken coop (to much of the amusement of the hens). They came, they went… and they left thousands of tiny little reminders behind. I know nothing about these birds. If anyone knows anything about these little guys… I’d love to know about them!

Talk about an E-Ticket for Mr. Mochi. For two days I got the Look of Death from him because I strictly enforce the indoor cat rule. I know he’s planning on sabotaging my fabric stash and leaving a nice coat of fur on it. He had that look in his eyes…

    HA! How hilarious that they went into the chicken coop! I think they’re Golden Crowned Sparrows… here’s a snippet from Cornell University

    I agree, Crowned Sparrows…don’t know about the golden part.. and I’m too lazy to get my book out. Love little brown birds!

    I think they’re Golden Crowned Sparrows too. I LOVE sparrows, but there are so many different varieties, it’s sometimes hard to tell them apart. Hey Jessica, that’s the same website we go to. It’s a great bird site! :) Our Indigo Buntings will be here soon. I can’t wait to see those! The Cardinals were a big thrill for me. :)

    Oh, by the way, Mr. Mochi looks so cute and fuzzy. I can’t wait to pet him! :)

  5. The fabulous Jessica allegedly said:

    That is a really great site! They give a lot more info than my Bird of the Willamette Valley Region does! Love those birdies! Better than tv any day!

    Cute! Bummer, I didn’t see any here.
    & You still have hens?!

  7. The fabulous Monica allegedly said:

    Thanks Pam and Jessica! Yup… I think that’s what those birds are. That’s an awesome link too… thanks so much Jessica!

    Cindy… this is Jessica. Jessica… this is Cindy. You bird lovers you!

    Kathleen… we still have the hens. We’re gave away three… kept three. Now they roam the yard on a happy chicken high. Come and see them sometime! They think they are dogs and come up to you to be pet. They way my dogs love you… I bet the chickens will fall in love with you too!

    yep, golden-crowned sparrows. seeing you are in the general area, www.birdweb.org is a good place to go for information about birds in the northwest…
    found you through the link to your folding via craftzine.com.

Farting around with needle & thread and then blogging about it.
