Blue Bird Sibling Rivalry

“Mom, she’s on my ledge again! Tell her to get off my ledge!”

“I’m not doing anything. I’m just sitting here.”

Outside Voice: She’s not hurting anything. Let her sit on your ledge.

“Mom, she’s touching me! Tell her to quit touching me!”

“What? My foot slipped. I’m not doing anything.”

Outside Voice: Don’t make me come over to that ledge! You two get along!

“Mom! MOM! She’s kicking me! Tell her to quit kicking me! Mom?”

Outside Voice:

  1. Dawn, you know if you take over my identity, you have to take over my housework too, so think about it first. πŸ™‚

    No, those birds are from the zoo’s aviary. It was a huge thing for me to go in the aviary because I have am terrified of birds. I think birds are so lovely, but they freak me out with all those feathers and flapping and beaks. My muscles were so tense during the 15 minutes I was in there that I won’t have to work out for months.

  2. Mom: “If you two don’t stop your bickering right now I’m going to tie your tails together and throw you over the clothesline!”

    Heard often in my home as we were growing up.

  3. My family laughs at my FOB (fear of birds). What if one flies over and lands on my head?! Eeek. However, I still prefer the avairy to the herpitarium. (shudder)

  4. Great pix! And hooray for facing your fears. I must say that I thought this was going in a different direction – I saw it first on Reader and thought maybe Sean was be-brothering a bird πŸ˜‰

  5. At first I thought they were both the same sex, but being a former Parakeet owner, I looked closer. The “kicker” is the one with the blue nose (cere) and that indicates HE is a boy. The other has a tan nose and that indicates she is a girl. Maybe he was just being a bossy male! Or getting a little “romantic” and was trying to convince her to join in on his mood.

  6. OK, you’ve BOTH lost your ledge privileges!

    Funny, I was just in my first aviary the other day with my 3 year old, who never wanted to leave. The birds kept landing on my backpack. My greatest fear, however, was that they would poop on me, especially in my long hair!

  7. Well, “Don’t MAKE me pull this minivan over!” wouldn’t fit, would it? How about:

    “I’m gonna jerk a knot in your tail!”

    or
    “Stop that squawkin’ or I’ll give you somethin’ to squawk aBOUT!”

  8. “That’s it. I’m whistling for the cat.”

    Together: “Mom! Nooooo! We’re sorry! We’ll be good! Can we go for ice cream? You look pretty today!”

  9. Outside voice, said silenty to herself: “I am going back in the house and pretend that I don’t know who those young birds belong to.”

  10. Heather’s comment made me laugh out loud.

    If I have to fly over there, I’M gonna kick some major tail feathers. I sat on your eggs for 5 weeks and this is the thanks I get?
