Sharing this photo with my Wacky Wednesday challenge. I think it fits the challenge because these birds are driving me wacky!
This time of the year is when the Bluebirds arrive in my backyard. Suppose to be a happy time, right? Wrong. This year the ratbirds (sparrows) are taking over and they are literally driving me crazy. They continue building and the bluebirds will not build in a dirty house. I go out and clean the nests out several times a day.
I am trying very hard not to give up and allow the ratbirds to win. There should be baby bluebirds by this time of the year. But I will continue clean up and using my bb gun after these predators as long as possible to allow the bluebirds to raise their family. The bb gun only scares them away, they always come back.
This happens each year as many of you may recall. But this year the ratbirds are more persistent. I will help the bluebirds even if it means buying a trap for these ratbirds. These birds will kill the bluebirds, their eggs, and their babies. It has happened and I will not allow it to happen again. Even if it means no bluebirds this year.
Wish me luck. I will reveal the answer to the question later.
Can you guess what is in this photo?
