Birdie Hunting

MARLEY:  The birdies keep comin to the feeder tray.  Its drivin me crazy ta see them so close, but I cant stop watchin them.

So I decided ta try an catch one.  Iza decided ta join me in the attempt.  I was lookin fer a good place ta hide, but iffen ya look real careful, ya can see that Iza found a good place first.


I thought she had a great place, so I copied her.
Iza watched the seed tray an I watched fer them approachin.
A few landed but we were too far away.  So I decided ta try "hidin in plain sight, a lot closer.  "Stop laffin Ayla.  Iffen one just goes straight fer the tray, Im close enough ta grab it!"


So I watched an watched an waited an waited...
It dint werk, so I went back inside an demanded some kibble-treats.  THOSE, I got!

Treats are always better. No hunting required! Purrs...

Birdies are sort of dumb, Marley, but they aren't THAT dumb!

You need to get upwind vs downwind so those birdies won't smell you.

I think those kibble treats are probably easier to catch, MOL!

Hunting birds is a hard work ; they are a little bit stupid, but when they see a red cat on the white snow, or on the path, waiting for them with fork and spoon instead of eyes, they are not stupid enough to stop by ! Purrs

Uau! Parece que estava muito frio lá fora, mas isso não impediu vocês de caçar! Muito bem, amigos.

You are lucky you didn't get dive-bombed & your ears pecked.

I don't think any birdies are going to come when you're standing right by their feeder! Good try, though, and you do deserve some treats.

Brian said...

Well, the treats were a darn good catch Marley!

The treats are probably tastier than any birdie would have been, anyhow.

The Cat From Hell said...

Treats is better than winter birdies! Most of them is stringy and tough! And the fevvers gets stuck in your teeths!

Nice try on the bird hunting.

TBT should build you a little igloo to hide out in!

Marley - you get points for endeavour but lose 'em again for poor tactics I'm afraid. At least you got some kibble treats.

Iza's right Marley, you need to find a discreet hiding place to catch those sneaky fev-vers.
