I am more intelligent than a female blackbird.

    I told her she'd never be able to fly with all that in her mouth, but she insisted on trying. And flew straight into the fence.

  3. ... but clearly not intelligent enough to speak 'bird'. She would've listened otherwise.

    Oh ... well she replied in perfect English!

    "Watch me then!", she said!
     
  5. I can jump higher than a house
     
  6. ah, she's of the english speaking variety. My mistake. Don't see many of them round here.

    She's into risk taking, I suppose.

    It must be in her genes, because 3 of her sons have taken one risk too many when playing chicken with a cat.

    Well, I know 2 were sons, one might have been a daughter, I didn't see.
     
  8. what would you have seen? a bird *****?

    Blackbirds are quite easy to sex... boys have a yellow beak and are black, girls are brown all over.
     
  11. We have seagulls here and they're all big and mean.

  13. No, that's not a seagull.

    Did I tell you about the scary seagull?

    Go on then
     
  16. Is it the same one that's sitting on my window sill. Cos if it is, I don't want to know.

    No, it was a different seagull.


    The short story is, it flew into my flat window at 4:30 am, scaring the ****e out of me because I was asleep.

    And it died.
     
  18. The window was probably the scariest character in that story.

    The one on my window sill is struggling to hold on in the window. If he tries any funny business I could just blow and he would fall off.

    It was very scary at the time...

    Finding the mangled gull on the pavement 3 stories down when I went to work was pretty grim too!

    At least the blackbird just looked daft, picked up some of her twigs, and tried again!
     
  20. Did you hold a ceremony for it?
