Robins, squirrels and doves.

A real mix here late on this hot afternoon (Two Stories).

Two stories in here for you to feast your eyes on. The first one is about the Cape-chat Robins in our garden that I hope you will enjoy and the second story is about squirrels surrounded by doves.
The doves count on fast flight whenever a squirrel accosts one of them and the squirrels count on their speed to prevent the doves from stealing their nuts.
Let's have a look at the Robins first.

Robbie do you think that Zac is looking at me? asked Robbie's wife at the left.

Robbie popped around the bath to give me "that" look!

His wife moved over to catch a hurried bath.

She popped up onto the edge of the bath.

And then she was finished and after this landing she disappeared.

Right and now for something else.

The doves know that we give the squirrels peanuts and so wearily they wait for a chance to grab a nut.

The squirrel was approaching me for a nut.

He whizzed past a dove that was a bit too close.

So I gave him a nut and I also gave a dove a nut.

Oh, oh, another squirrel appeared who still had a nut.

So the first squirrel took off at speed.

It's amazing to watch how the doves open a peanut shell. They grab it in their beak and bang the nut on the cement pavers until the shell breaks. Then they eat the nuts out of the shell.
The doves and the squirrels are forever in competition and there is only one that the doves fear and will never challenge.
That one is Harry the warrior, as Harry is our wild Egyptian goose that even the cats fear.

And so, I really hope that you have enjoyed the two stories and the photos.

And That's All Friends.
