Daily Prompt: Lecture

Birdhouse 28.12 (31)

“Listen birds, this cannot go on.”

“Someone having a tweet?”

“No I don’t think so,  only presidents tweet, or was it a human?”

“Yes it was a human, the human that feeds you every day with bird seed.”

“Great, always enough to eat, although the missus says I now waddle and no longer hop.”

“But look at the mess on the ground. Discarded bird seed everywhere.”

“No problem, the cleaners will polish it off.”

“The cleaners do not polish it off, because that don’t find it all and the discarded birdseed is growing between the paving stones.”

“No problem human, that means a new fresh crop of bird seed again.”

“Birds you should really be more careful about where the birdseed falls.”

“It was the sparrows. They toss it everywhere, no care. They pounce and eat and nothing left for the others. They always were the cheeky ones.”

“Pick on someone your own size blackbird.”

“Just look at you all. You sparrows no longer hop, you waddle. One of you fell off a branch yesterday and couldn’t pick itself up again, it was so heavy.”

“That is not true, it was the wind that was blowing.”

“Just stupid excuses..”

“Now birds stop arguing, We must have some organisation in the pecking order. I would say the sparrows come first, they are quick and finish in a few minutes. Afterwards the great tits.”

“And us blackbirds and chaffinches?”

“You get the rest that falls on the ground. You are too heavy for the birdhouse in any case.”

“And so the humans are now organsing it all.”

“It is quite easy birds. Who braves the wind and storm and rain to make sure you have enough birdseed? Who carries the heavy bags of birdseed from the store to make sure there is always enough?”

“No idea, it just appears in time when there are only a few sunflower seeds left.”

“Because your human observes your supplies and as soon as it looks empty we fill it.”

“We  thought it just appeared when we were not looking. Ok, in that case if you want to organise, no more sunflower seeds, they get stuck in my mouth.”

“But sparrows, we blackbirds love the sunflower seeds, full of bites.”

“I give up.”

“Human, just fill it up, we birds will sort it out for ourselves. And no hemp seeds, it gives us all dizzy spells.”

“But I love the hemp, I can really fly high on that. Where are you going human?”

“Sort it out for yourselves. I have never met such an ungrateful pack of birds with food problems, and now I have to organise withdrawal treatment for the hemp seeds.”
