The boys went outside to check mail and Zephyr came back in worried about a 'baby bird.' He said Banjo kept messing with a red bird. So, to get him to chill out; I went outside with him to see the 'baby bird.' Well it is not a baby and Banjo had not killed it. Meet 'CHEWY,' a cardinal.
Chewy is steady giving me 'stink eye' for having caught him.
But if you notice in this picture; 'Chewy' is missing some tail feathers and thus he can not fly. He tried hopping away from us and we gave chase with a net and an apron. After I bagged 'Chewy;' I gave him the once over and he promptly tried to kill my thumb. (The apron saved me becase he attack it instead.)
Do you see him sticking his beak out at me planning my demise?
Chewy almost got chewed on and then promptly tried to chew on me. Here he sits until he can fly safely away. There are too many critters that Chewy would make a delightful snack. Sorry Chewy.
