Bird Watching: “Mrs. C is no ordinary angry bird”

Mrs. C gives me the ‘eagle eye’ every time she spots me near her nest in my front yard apricot tree. I assume it’s because she is sitting on eggs or very young chicks.

Mr. C ‘cheeps’ from a safe distance when I come outdoors with my camera and a few days ago I saw him standing on the edge of the nest and either feeding his young or straightening his CD collection. The movements are somewhat similar, in my mind at least.

This morning Grandson Ollie spent less time than usual scanning the apricot tree to locate bird activity because he wanted to show me his collection of Play Doh angry birds. 

The red one is my favourite.
