Peckin’ at my balls.

Isn’t that what they’re supposed to do?   I mean, that’s why I put out those suet seed ball thingies...






OK,  I couldn’t help myself.  I’ll be getting some strange hits now I imagine.  That wasn’t really the idea.

It’s just that,  every time I look out there,  that same thought pops into my head.  I had to get it out of my system.  Beg yer pardon.


They are good looking little fellers though,  ain’t they? 

The birds,  that is.

Of course,  I haven’t a clue what they are.  They look like some kind of chickadee.  Only a guess.

I think I had better stop while I’m ahead.



Maybe some ‘bird folk’ out there can chime in. 




I think the sun did come out for about 15 minutes there.  It’s gone now.  That was pretty much it for the excitement. 

Whistle a happy tune!


Hope you’re having a good week.  Thanks for looking in.




  1. Yep you said it now its done! Not sure what kinda birds butthey are there peckin'.

  2. Don't know anything about European ball pecking birds. :(

  3. We bought a field guide for the birds of Europe... somehow we just haven't gotten around to finding those birds that peck on balls. I did kind of notice that Bill had his hand shielding certain parts of his body as I'm reading this.... but then... he's a better birder than I am ;-)

  4. Catchy title-hope you have your spam guard on high alert:)


Well, I've been getting too many spam comments showing up. Just a drag, so we'll go another route and hope that helps. So, we won't be hearing anything more from Mr. Nony Moose.
I guess I'll just have to do without that Gucci purse.
