every morning like clockwork, ms. redbird shows up to defend her space. she’s a tenacious thing, continuing her task despite the would-be distractions of a nosey cat and a growling dog. outsiders are not the issue, you see. ms. redbird tenaciously defends her space from her own reflection, from her own self. when it comes to protecting her personal territory, she is her own worst enemy.

(i posted this on another blog o’mine, now retired, but have decided to resurrect it here because the precious little ole’ bird is still going strong, beginning every morning around 7:00. she has, however, expanded her territory from that one window to 2 bedroom windows and my studio windows.)
