cody bear: good morning everyone and welcome to “ignoring nature in our own back yard”. I’m cody bear and this is my lovely co-host pickles.
pickles: ooooh, i’ve found a bug!
cb: ignore it!
cb: (aside) see why she is just the co-host
cb: today on “ignoring” we will be talking about the many birds in our back yard we ignore. what did we ignore yesterday, pickles.
pick: first we have a mail house finch
cb: how boring!
pick: actually…i ….i think he looks very yummy.
cb: how can you say that? he doesn’t even closely resemble a cat!
pick: i’m find it very yard to ignore him. especially when i only get two meals a day.
cb: house finches are very common here, along with many other finches, sparrows, doves, grackles. sometimes we get grackles, thrashers, pigeons, humming birds, cardinals, goldfinches, mockingbirds, wrens. all these birds are very inviting to the local cats, which is why they are very important to my personal food chain. but still….i ignore them.
cb: our loudest visitor is the hummingbird.
pick: hummingbirds are too small, too fast and too far away. this makes them easy to ignore.
cb: excellent point pickles. what the….?
cb: pigeon from below. these are easy to ignore. very stupid. not an ounce of cunning. easy to ignore.
pick: difficult to ignore.
cb: i ignore birds by chasing cars as they drive by the fence.
pick: i ignore birds by chasing cody bear as he chases cars as they drive by the fence.
cb: but the best way to ignore nature is by…
cb and pick: ROMPING!
cb: well that’s it for today. we’re going to eat breakfast then go ignore more wildlife
pick: (aside) i’d like to try one of those finches.
cb: see you next time!
