When Zooey of zoolatry.blogspot.com suggested that I post something for NOMS, I immediately thought of sunflower seeds and nomnomnom good. Nope that wasn’t it. Today, August 5, is NOMS day and that stands for Not Of My Species.
A day to “celebrate” (or make fun of … or whatever!)
a species other than yourself!!!
I’m going to ignore the easy stuff. I thought of doing peeps but that’s low hanging fruit. So I put my thinking cap on and got inspiration
What’s the dumbest species of all? I mean dee you emm dumb?
It’s the squirrel. I’ve only met one semi-smart one in my life and he had a moose to do the brain work.
We birds get blamed for stuff squirrels do like poop landing on your head when you walk under a tree. We even get blamed for bombing someone when it was actually a flying squirrel. Squirrels just take over a tree and don’t share space with birds. When squirrels move in, it’s time for birds to move out because “there goes the neighborhood”.
Keep on SQUAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWKing.
You’re right Kismet……birds do get blamed for a lot of white splashes on shoulders and heads……Such a shame. Anyone can just look at your innocent face and know that your poop lands on authorized surfaces only!
I am just soooooooo not guilty.
I was sure you were going to peck on, er, I mean pick on, me, Kissie. I’m glad you went for the squirrels. Xena
I wouldn’t want to pick on you but I could have and that is something I wouldn’t do to a friend.
Crap ~ you talking crap really!
Don’t I always?
MEOW! Don’t steal my furs for your cage-nest! Our birds feeders be over run by those squirrels you can come get them whenevers you want!
Nope, they are all yours. I don’t want them.
Squirrels are evil. Everyone knows that. Love this. It’s a huge Awww so I’m linking it to Awww Mondays.
Have a birdtastic day, Kismet. My best to your mom. ♥
If everyone already knows this, I wasted my time and a LOT of electrons.
I second your nomination. 👍🏻
Shouldn’t that be nomnomnomnomination?
I thought about that but thought it might be too cheesy for a hip bird like you.
That was one awesome Squaaaak sweet Kismet! Happy NOM day sweetie!
Another squirrel hater is welcome.
My Mom LOVES, LOVES, LOVES squirrels! Barks and licks and love, Dakota
Squirrels…..never knew that about them. We just thought they got in the BIRD’s feeders and either ate all the seeds OR scattered them about!
Yes, they steal my food also.
Squirrels are the enemy! Rats with makeovers. Bushy rodents.
Shouln’t that be “failed maeovers”?
