Phennig Makes a Friend

May 2, 2009


This is one of the reasons we try not to let Phennig out of the house. She’s always bringing home stray animals and asking if she can keep them. I think she might be lonely.

She might be a little afraid of it.

    Please don’t mulch the bird.


  2. Brad Said on:

    What kind of bird is that? I’m only a novice at identifying birds. It doesn’t look like any of the birds that visit my birdfeeder.


    • Lauren Said on:

      It’s a finch.

      (Were you setting me up for that?)


      • Michele Said on:

        He he -- finch! Dang Lauren! I would have said the same thing if I were up at some crazy hour like you guys!

        You should see the awesome bird pictures my son took in Costa Rica. There are so many different color birds -- all beautiful. Instead of bird feeders, they hang plantains on a line to attract the birds. It’s hysterical!

    GREAT pictures…both of them!! I just love inter-specie relationships!!

    (Beth-you funny!)

    I’m puzzled by the brown bird. Carolina wren?

    By the way, Dad said you could come to our house and run over the dead silver snake that’s in the road by our house… (Last post.)


    • Lauren Said on:

      We don’t know what kind it is, but I am 99% certain that it is a bird. 🙂 The photo is from late last summer -- it’s an old back-up post.

      The response to Brad is from a book of ordinary life wisdom called, “Normal is just a setting on the dryer”. I should put up more quotes from it more often, but this one is: ‘If you see a bird you can’t recognize, just say with quiet authority, “It’s a finch,” and it will most likely be.’
