A page from Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you see? by Eric Carle and Bill Martin Jr.
Ok, so Nevermore comes and visits me every once in awhile, but he's pretty much a thing of the past. Now meet Loco Louie. Yes, folks, we have been bombarded by a crazy cardinal now.
He attacks our kitchen window at least 20 times a day. And by that I mean each time he "visits", it consists of several hits to the window. Watch this video and see what I mean.
This reminds me of what Rita Rudner said. "Never play peek-a-boo with a child on a long plane trip. There's no end to the game. Finally I grabbed him by the bib and said, Look, it's always gonna be me!"
I feel like grabbing this bird and saying, "Look, it's always gonna be YOU!" When is he going to realize that it's not another male bird, but only him! Maybe all this flying into the window has knocked him senseless.
That's all I know is, it was funny to begin with. Now it's getting frustrating and aggravating as I sit by the kitchen table working on my laptop, tapping at the keys while he's tapping at the window. Kind of freaky.
Then I noticed this bird hanging around. Could he be next? Stay tuned.
