We birds get blamed for a lot. Here’s a local example. We have a lot of oranges on our bush. They’ve been orange for a month. We’re talking about a couple of hundred of them.
The peeps went out to pick some for themselves. We birds got there first.
The peeps blame woodpeckers who are just trying to make a living. Nice try, peeps. Next time harvest in February. We birds have a saying,
“The early peep gets the fruit’.
your peeps should be gratefull.. the berds peeled the oranges for them and they haven’t to waste time with that boring orange peeling…
Not only that, they’ve been already eaten and the peeps don’t need to spend energy eating them.
Yep, I’ll have to agree. They were there for the taking and they got there first. It’s not the birds fault.
Have a fabulous day. ♥
Perhaps you’ve seen peeps when there’s free food about?
Those birds sure do know how to carve out an orange. Maybe they used the pulp for orange juice.

Waste not-want not. They use everything but the peel and the steam.
You could still do Candied Orange Peels
Orange Peel Hangover Cure ~ now that is one for the peeps/
Yeah, put Ruby’s name on it and use it for margarita day (after).
I’ve never seen anything like this. I guess if the peeps want the oranges to be all theirs, they will have to build a really big green house. Or orange house.
Or don’t procrastinate until March…
It’s all fun and games until there is a mimosa shortage.Then the bird purge begins.
OJ isn’t the most important ingredient in mimosa. We’ll all survive it.
there ya go, you tell ’em!!!!!
The peeps don’t listen to parrots-they don’t realize that we have insightful and deep thoughts, not just unsightly and deep poop.
We feel your pain. We have a macadamia tree for over 28 years. The tree has nuts every year. The harvest has been about 10 actual nuts over this period of time. The nuts have a double very hard shell. I need a sleigh hammer to break them open. They are empty. The birds get to them and steal the nuts with no problem. BUMMER
Macademia nuts? I’d be right over but you have none 😦
the one nut that I got was really good. My husband had sent a whole box of nuts to a friend up north about 27 years ago and the friend wanted to know why we had sent a box of empty nuts.
A box of empty nuts sounds like our house.
