This morning while coughing up a lung from the smoke that seems to gather in the early morning I opened the doors and hoped to clear the smell from the house. I started the coffee pot and look who was waiting for me on my kitchen window. The two sweet baby birds had left the chicken coop and flew over to start what I now call "Birdie Daycare" - it seems that the parents have felt their day too full to watch their little one's so they now hang out either on the window ledges or in the house. I still have not had a chance to talk payment but their lovely songs and sweet faces are payment enough but don't tell the parents that - I am still hoping to earn a bit more scratch around the farm.
Wondering what the going rate for daycare out here goes for out here? I must admit I am not much of a bird person but these sweet one's grow on you.
