Spies in Our Midst June 15, 2016Posted by stuffilikenet in Awesome, Uncategorizable.
My new house is infested with starlings. Dozens of the little yellow-eyed black-feathered devils darken the skies when they swarm. Their cries ring from morning till night everyday.
The most insidious thing about these spawn of Satan is their subtle forward observation posts, right under the kitchen window and the bedroom window.
Indeed, there is a nest in every bush around the house, and two each in the cedars framing the driveway. The tree overlooking the back patio is bare now, so they take their chances spying on us from that place.
Hitchcock was prescient in a way.
Exciting update: they have been joined in their espionage by a swallow watching the front door. We’ll fix him; we locked it and use the side door.
