THESE EMPTY NESTERS HAVE SURROUNDED THEMSELVES WITH FULL NESTS (that was the best I could do, pls excuse me, I'm trying). I am readjusting to country life for the summer.
  1. They have, not one,
    Static
  2. but
    Static
  3. THREE oriole feeders;
    Static
    solids, semi-solids, and liquids—duh
  4. a standard seeder, plus— not one,
    Static
  5. but
    Static
  6. THREE suet cages,
    Static
  7. whatever the fuck this is, and
    Static
    a finch feeder, I THINK
  8. not one,
    Static
    this is old as hell
  9. but TWO (I know) birdhouses,
    Static
    I think I made this with my dad
  10. a window hummingbird feeder,
    Static
    true story: the Orioles come to this feeder and harass you while you're watching tv if they're out of food
  11. and this 100% RIDICULOUS one in the front.
    Static
    they r thirsty 4 the birdz
  12. Finally, of course, a bird bath (of course)
    Static
  13. plus, BONUS: this goddamn, motherfucking killdeer decided to build her nest in the driveway (4 eggs circled in red 4 your convenience), and my dad (kindly, rightly) put flags around it
    Static
    but getting in and out of the driveway is a goddamn PAIN IN THE ASS because she runs back and forth across the driveway all goddamn day. I started to walk down to get the recycle bin from the end of the drive and turned around because she was charging at me. parenthood is STRESSFUL. (I will whisper this to you, and you only: I secretly wish a snake would come and eat the eggs! this is false, of course, but also so true. I pretend to be a nature-loving hipshit, but nature terrifies me. bye.)
