Seriously, what is it with the birds lately? They seem to be targeting me and that does not make me feel comfortable – cue Tippi Hedren in the phone booth.

So today at the office, a pair of mourning doves came to my window ledge – the same place where those turkey vultures landed recently.


The two birds seemed very chummy, perhaps where the term “lovey dovey” comes from. One of the pair then jumped to the narrow sill of my window and spent a few minutes just looking in at me – which I thought was pretty cool.

So it is just crazy with the birds these days – I feel like St. Francis all of a sudden. Wait until all my new friends find out that I really don’t care for birds…
