The Neighborhood is Going to the Birds

Various of our neighbors have flocks of chickens.

Our neighborhood chickens lay beautiful eggs.

The chickens lay eggs in various beautiful shades of blue and tan.

This is a good-sized rooster.

One neighbor has no chickens just a noisy rooster.

This rooster stood on our side porch looking at the wall for hours.

The sound of his cock-a-doodle-doo seemed louder than usual.

The rooster hopped up on our front porch then back to the side porch.

Charlie called the rooster’s owner after it deposited a load of guano on our front porch.

This rooster is pretty but annoying.

He was unsuccessful luring the bird off our property and back home.  He said he might have to build a cage.

GO HOME!
GO HOME!

My opinion: start building.

Any suggestions for stray birds landing on a porch?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
