Friday at the Flicks - Blackbird with Coconut

Not a lot been going on here of outstanding interest recently. Some days ago I noticed the strong shadow of a Blackbird enjoying the suet filling in a half coconut:




Penny has been having a rough few days. Either the experience of having two teeth out, the anaesthetic or the anti-inflammatory tablets, or all, upset her stomach. Wednesday night she got me up every two hours as she needed to go outside. It was weird as her grizzling while she stood next to my bed was incorporated in a dream each time before I woke up. Since then she has been slowly improving - eating quite well of some tinned dog food, boiled fish and boiled chicken. Penny isn't allowed anything hard to eat for a week. Also she is getting back to being her normal inquisitive self.

  2. the shadows are cool. glad penny is feeling better. all too often, i've heard the anesthetic as well as having teeth worked on which dislodges so much 'gunk' into their digestive tract can really make them sick. poor girl. i know you're looking forward to getting more rest, too.

  3. Great video John, I loved the arty, shadow bit. Your birds must think they are in birdy paradise, they are so well catered for :)

    Sorry to hear Penny and you have had a difficult time. We have had the same problem here on three nights this last week with Louis (not caused by the same thing of course!). The worst bit is that he can't go down the stairs on his own anymore due to weakness in his back legs, we have to hold onto his collar and encourage him all the way which takes a while each time....he is much too big and heavy to carry...so no fun several times during the night!! I do hope Penny will soon be back to normal and that you can both sleep easy.

    1. Jan: I don't have an upstairs so it is easy for Penny to wake me up. Sorry to hear Louis hasn't been well. Hope he is recovering now.

  4. Nice Blackbird video there John. I've had the same problem as you in the past week or so- just haven't really had anything of note to post about. Hope Penny continues to improve, sounds as though she's having a bit of a rough time.
