The Suet Block is Always Tastier on the Other Side


“So glad I got here first. That pushy Steller’s jay would be hogging both suet blocks if he could.”


“Darn it all. That flicker got the best suet block. If I’d only been a few seconds faster, it would have been all mine, for me, myself, and I.

I’ll have to take the left over one. I’m sure it’s not as good as the one  Mr. Polka-dot is nibbling at. If he were a tad smaller, I’d scare him off, like I do the little runts that come here looking for a free handout.”

“Good, he’s gone. I’ll give that other suet block a try. Hope it doesn’t stick to my beak like that other block does.”

“Let’s see…. One big leap and a quick turn in the air and I’ll be up there. Can’t wait to get my beak into that treat.”

“Now for a taste of the good stuff.

Blech! Yech. Blech. He sure didn’t let on it tasted that bad. Yuck! Where can I spit?”

“Oh well … I’ll do without. The missus says I’m getting a bit of a belly anyway.”

  11. I love it when you give them voices, Anneli! I’m so glad to see the jay. We’ve had trouble with west nile virus taking out our jays, crows and magpies. I’ve heard they’re starting to come back so maybe I’ll get to see them again one of these days. I know they’re not the best neighbors, but they sure are beautiful.
