See my protector? After my phone conversation with the County Extension Office yesterday, I went out and hired an owl. He agreed to work for free, dangling from my window by duck tape.
Look at what the Cedar Waxwings did to a corner of my window frame! You can't quite see it, but if you look directly under the owls eye, toward the inside of the window, you'll see a hole bored into the frame. And then all that chipped and chewed up part of the wood is also from The Birds. There was some paint chipping prior to their attack, but not anywhere near this much!
My friend, Claudette, said that Cedar Waxwings like to eat mock crabapples and can get drunk, will hang upside down on branches, fall to the ground, stumble around etc. Sometimes they line up on a branch, and pass the fruit to the back of the line until everyone gets a piece of it.
No sign of them today, but I know it wasn't just Tuesday that they were around, but it was the day they were the most numerous and relentless (about 50 to 75 in my yard!)
I'd like my house to stop being under attack, now, for awhile. . . not by air (birds), sea (flood water), land (EXCEL exploding plastic gas lines) or even any hauntings, should that occur next.
