Tweetie Pie’s Spring Song.
I’m doing my courting ready for my 2011 brood. But Felix is on the prowl, eyeing the bird boxes and nests for his hunting season. I can avoid the other hunter Gerry who has two bells on his collar – he can keep one quiet but not two. Alas Felix has no bell so I hope his human will keep him under curfew like he did last year.
I like the story of Felix’s recent misfortune. He has a magnet collar to open the cat flap for him but to keep his lovers and mates out. Ha Ha! His human came down in the morning and found him stuck to the fridge.
The sparrow hawk attacks at 45 mph and my reactions are bred in to dodge this velocity, but cars over that speed on a rural road can be fatal. I am still mourning over the 6 million UK bird friends lost in 2010 and hope that humans will slow down and give us a better chance this year.
