Not a Big Bird, but a Brave Bird….

I want to give you an update on the Bird who’s been visiting.  A couple of weeks ago I was wondering if it was an Angry Bird or Just a Silly Bird? I was so concerned that the Bird would hurt itself by flying into the window time and time again.

Dad decided to get an owl to try and scare it away, but the Owl was too big to fit on the shelf.  Next he tried a Dinosaur, yep, Cory had one lying around in his room….even I found this pretty scary, this was sure to work……

I couldn’t believe the Bird wasn’t scared of the Dinosaur or if it was it wasn’t letting us see how scared it was.  It was undeterred.  This was puzzling….

Finally, a day or two ago Mum and I got the biggest clue as to what’s been going on with this Bird.  Mum thinks the Bird has a nest in the gutter and it’s protecting it’s young.

This sure is a brave Bird to take on a Dinosaur!!  So Mum says now that we’ll just have to wait until the chicks leave the nest and she expects the Bird will then fly away…..I think I’m going to miss it……it’s been like an alarm clock at first light…..Mum says she won’t miss it so much?

I think I’m going to need to increase my garden patrols to keep those pesky critters away from the chicks…..I’m on the case……. :)


  1. I think that is adorable and I think that is one smart and devoted birdie!!

  2. That’s a great photo of the bird with nesting material! I’m so glad you’re going to let it stay – I hope the rain doesn’t wash the nest away! Good job Snoopy! :D

  3. Your birdie looks OK but we’s saw a Red birdie that came with a lot of heartache. Our Mom wrote about it on her bloggy sometime ago and if we ever see a Red birdie at our window again, we will go run and hide!

  4. Aha! Now it’s all starting to make sense – it’s a mama bird!

    Perfect timing with the camera – she had quite the haul in her mouth!

    Happy Friday and weekend Snoopy and Family!

    • Hi Lori,

      Yep we got really lucky that Mum spotted the Bird just before it flew to the nest, the camera is never far away in our house……tee hee

      Wags to Gus and have a great weekend,

      Snoopy :)

  5. I’m sure you’re great at patrolling the area, Snoopy! Keep us up-to-date on this latest case — it sounds like you’ve almost cracked the mystery!

    Woofs & hugs,


    • Hi Bailey,

      I’ve recruited Cosmo too – I’m in charge of patrolling though, he’s just my assistant…….:)

      Have a fun day,

      Your pal Snoopy :)

  6. Way to go, Snoopy. Keep your family safe and those babies too! I know you are up to the task. And be sure to get a good long nap this afternoon, just incase you are woken up early tomorrow.

    Puppy Kisses,

    • Hi Tanner,

      I keep trying to say hi to you on your site – but ‘Bloggers’ all broken :(

      I’m busy playing with Cosmo right now but Mum says I should have time for a nap later, so I’ll be wide awake and ready in the morning – yay!! :)

      Hope you’re having fun,

      Snoopy :)

  7. Nice pic of the bird :)

  8. I love the bird photo! If anyone can protect those little babies, I know Snoopy is the man for the job!

  9. You stay on guard, Snoopy! You’ll get to claim dog-father rights if all goes well…

    • Hey Vicky,

      That’s funny!! I think I’d love to be a Dog-Father, yep, I think they’ll have no choice cos I’m doing such a good job!! :)

      Woofs to all,

      Snoopy :)

  10. Super Snoopy to the rescue! It’s a good thing mama bird is brave enough to stand up to a dinosaur. That means you can scratch dinosaurs off your list of “pesky critters.” :)

    • Hi Pauline,

      Yep, that Mama Bird sure impressed me, she wasn’t at all phased by the Dinosaur – I don’t think the Owl would have worked either as it looked really cute – Mum picked it!! But at least now we know what’s going on we can let it stay :) I’ll just sort out those “pesky critters” :)

      Hope you’re having a great day,

      Snoops :)

  11. Hi, sam here from the Blog Hop, I like visiting your site!
    Wow! You have a robin nesting in your gutters! Way cool! We have a whole bunch of birds. We live in the country and they are everywhere. As soon as it starts to get light, they starts making a LOT of noise. At first, when they came back up north, it was awful, but no I ardly notice them and I just keep sleeping.
    Tail Wags,

    • Hi Sam,

      Yep, I think I’m starting to get used to the Bird – although I’m kinda in the habit of getting up early, Mum’s an early Bird, but she says first light is just a little early for her in the Summer?! :)

      Have a fun weekend,

      Your pal Snoopy :)

  12. Glad you solved the mystery, Snoopy! We’ve had birds hanging around because of a nest and one of the babies got in our yard and didn’t know how to fly. I hope that doesn’t happen to you. I couldn’t go outside for 2 whole days!!

    • Hi Sage,

      Ah, the poor Bird couldn’t fly? I’m hoping ours work it out, if not I sure will give them some space while they figure it out :)

      Have a fun weekend,

      Snoops :)

  13. That makes sense. Until I got to the bottom of the post I was thinking “that crazy bird is still around?”. I remember your last post where it kept flying at your window. I assume the nest is above the window.

    • Yep Jessica,

      The nest is right above the window, well I haven’t actually seen the nest, cos Mum won’t let me go up, but that’s where the Bird took the stuff – we’re all staying well away! :)

      Hope you’re having a fun weekend,

      Wags from Snoops :)

  14. Snoopy, that bird can’t outsmart you! :)

  15. Hi Snoopy!
    We had a bird trying to make a nest in our dryer vent a few months ago and it actually got into the house! Yeah, mom wasn’t happy about either!

    • Wow Kirby,

      A bird actually in the house!? That would have been interesting, no idea what I would have done……hmmmmmm!

      Have a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  16. You’re on it Snoop, great stuff. We came home from our trip and we have a robin nest high up on our porch. Maybe we should start a robin protector club.

  17. Pavo the peacock thinks there is another bird in the window looking out at him. I bet that bird thinks it is cool another Mother cares just as much as she that the babies are safe!

    • Hi there Z Bird,

      Yep, we’ve all gotta help out to ensure those chicks get a good start, I’ve even enlisted Cosmo from next door to help! :)

      Have a great day,

      Snoopy :)
