What a cute little bird

First, my old friend John Jonik sent me a link to his blog of his political cartoons. John and I have been friends for about forty years. Among other very important political and social issues, he’s  very concerned about the tobacco industry.


What a pretty little bird at my studio window! It’s a yellow throated warbler. Isn’t he cute!

After a while, though…

I shooed him away

So I tried the old cut-out thing

And I sawed off the damn bird’s launch pad. He found a new one.

I took a picture of a great horned owl and made a cutout.

Well that didn’t work. But no stinking bird can out smart U No Hoo!

Another parrot and a toucan threw him off for about 30 seconds.

I tried a loggerhead shrike…

A screech owl.

A great horned owl.

Dammit. I fixed it. I took me a two and a half days, but no stupid bird can out smart the world’s smartest genius!

    I totally accept your claim that you’re “the world’s smartest genius”, but are you stable? Geniuses (genii?) have to be stable, or it doesn’t count, you know.

    Maybe it was looking for a place to make a nest. We have had parakeets and I tellya, the females are psycho when the hormones start flowin’!

      I’m pretty sure it was his reflection that he was fighting, The windows are somewhat mirrored to keep out some of the Florida heat.

    I had a similar interaction with male robin a few years ago that went on for several days. The solution that finally worked for me was to tape brightly colored plastic streamers to the outside of the window.

      I had big trouble with a red bellied woodpecker several years ago in Virginia. I hung everything I could think of next to where he was drilling a huge holes in my hollow porch columns.
