Ya Learn Something New EVERY DAY!

Birds DO it!

Don’t ask me why I didn’t know!

But they DO!


I was walking to work today and I TOTALLY saw two little birds DOING IT!

And uh, I stopped.

And watched.



This bigger bird kept hopping on top of this littler bird, trying to thrust his bird-pelvis closer to hers while she flapped her little wings furiously.

Jump, Thrust, Off. Jump, Thrust, Off.

It was like a little wierdo bird dance…

…the bird dance of LOVE!


Being the devout blogger I am, I tried to take a picture to SHOW YOU the bird sex, but they didn’t appreciate the voyeurism and kinda sorta flew away. :-\

I know, I’m 12. Seriously. Issues.

Speaking of though, just so NO ONE is alarmed, chocolate cake and pickles are JUST a wierd food preference. NOTHING ELSE. Okay? Thanks though, for putting wierd little paranoid-driven thoughts into my head resulting in Holly and I spending an entire afternoon at the shop naming my imaginary baby!

Thankfully, the world will never meet Lincoln Noel R.P. [lastname]-[lastname]*.


* no, I will not tell you what the R.P. is for. Trust me, it’s TOTALLY T.M.I.

    You are nuts! I guess love can do that to you! ;-)

    One of the most disturbing things I ever saw was a sad little girl pigeon being used by multiple boy pigeons by the Dupont fountain. My friend and I could NOT look away, but it was really really wrong.

    I once watched a duck drag another duck through the water by the neck and flop it out on the beach. I thought it was rescuing it from drowning. I posted a question to some university animal behaviourologist on-line and got the response back that it was actually a duck rape that was in progress. Who knew!

    Dear Perv,
    I’m going to call your baby ‘Fritz’.

    How did you think we got baby birds? Did you miss that class in school?!?!?!?!??

  6. Norma Says:

    Yup, we raised ducks. It’s really icky to watch.

  7. Carrie Says:

    One day, one of us really is going to have a baby or pet named Fritz, and Anne Marie’s life will be complete. She always wants to name it Fritz. No matter what it is.

    I saw two birds doing it once too but it took me a minute to figure it out. I thought they were fighting!

    As far baby names go. I love the name Sigmund Bartholomew. My hubby said “do you want your child to die on the playground not from the beating he will get for having such a doofy name but rather the sheer embarassment of answering to that name!” We obviously have no children.
