Mischief Monday - Wildlife Invasion

Why do we have to be in the crate when there is a bird!
The Scene: Saturday morning - the Man and Lady were getting ready to go out. Hailey was insistent that there was something in the living room. The Man checks it out.

The invader: A bird in the chimney

What happened next: Extra doors were closed, the pups were put in the crate, patio doors were open, Man opened the fireplace doors.

The bird, flew towards patio, but hit the door. It flew up and hit the fireplace. It flew into the dining room and bounced off a window before
flying out the patio door.

Until next time bird!

Lady's attempt to photograph the bird:)

Other wildlife encounters this week:
-The deer - we saw some every day
-The wild turkeys - we saw them a lot
-We tried to chase a woodpecker
-Lady saw 2 foxes
-Lady had to stop to let a duck cross the road
-Lady saw someone trying to coax their run away sheep off the highway
-The Man checked on a bird that hit the window (he was stunned but then flew away)

Spring is in the air! 


  1. that sure are signs of spring :o) we had a dove once in the chimney and it flew in the window of our living room while removing all trashures from the window sill... may dad said that dove came in time...butt the mama called him a dov-us :O)

  2. Crikey ... I s'pose it must be Spring but why did you have to go in your crate. You could have got rid of that birdie much easier than Man did, aye?

  3. Good grief that birds GPS needs to be updated
    Hugs madi your bfff

    i once lived in a place with a lot of glass and the birds thought they could fly right through. Then they met the glass... have nursed a few wings back to consciousness!!! Makes for a more interesting life... hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  5. Wow! The wildlife sure is active over in your neighborhood! A definite sign that Spring has sprung!

  6. Sounds like Spring is definitely springing and wildlife mischief is in the air!!

  7. Wow, your day was FULL of excitement!

  8. Awesome! I would like to chase all them animals...MWAHAHAHA!

    Your Dachshund pal who is running for mayor,

  9. Restless wildlife, you may be in for a long summer.

  11. Sounds like the bird was quite panicked, haha. Glad it got out eventurally. I love deers. It's so nice you get to see them so often!

  12. SO much excitement around your house!!!!!

    Hugs, Sammy

  13. Oh no not stuck in your enclosed fireplace! Mom had this once and had to put us in the bedroom while she got the bird out. She said we were scaring it. Why would a bird come down our chimney? Geesh


  14. We noticed the birdies around our area are acting very silly lately. Ghostwriter says it's because of nesting season. Whatever that means. The bunnies are starting their annual invasion and two ducks keep showing up in our next door neighbor's front yard in the morning.

    Oh, we had a birdie stuck in the garage. We never knew it was there until we found its mummified remains in a corner when we did some cleaning. Poor birdie!

  15. Oh my goodness. Almost a Hitchcock movie!

  16. so long as the wildlife stay outside all is well :)

  17. Wow you do have lots of wildlife around you, all we have is a ton of birds that dad feeds and of course the wild guy that lives down the street, does that count? stella rose

  18. My goodness that bird knocked itself silly trying to get out of your house

  19. Wow, that must have been exciting to have a bird in the house. If we were there, we could have helped catch it. ;)

  20. Wow, I bet that was exciting to watch! Poor confused birdie... glad he finally got out. OMD your Lady saw foxes! They are so pretty. I never had to watch for duck crossings before. BOL
    Grr and Woof,

  21. So much excitement around there! We are waiting to see more wildlife at our new house. So far we've had one lone wild turkey, and my hubby finally saw some deer down in the woods. We can hear the woodpeckers everywhere - they sound big (I hope they're pileated)! But we haven't seen them yet. We had a bird in the garage that I thought was going to fly right into my head on his way out!

  22. Wow, you live in a wild area!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  23. If a bird was in our house, I'm pretty sure Mom would pack up and move! Your parents are very brave and smart to figure out that strategy.

    Love and licks,

  24. Yay for Spring! I hope it sticks around a bit for you! That's a lot of wildlife! :D

  25. I am loving ladies attempt to photograph the bird. Mine would be as good

  26. BOy!! I hope that the bird can fly straight, bol


  27. LOL so much excitement at your house.
