Sibling Rivalry


Such a beautiful day.




I find myself at the peanut feeder -ALONE!

can't believe my good fortune.

Then,
 I hear that voice...



I recognize it instantly.
It's shrill and annoying and has followed me since birth.


My brother has arrived.


He's not there two minutes before he says something rude to me, something about sharing.


"Sharing's for the birds," I answer, "just not for THIS bird!"


Before long the two of us are hurling insults at each other.


Tempers rise, feathers start to fly...


And then it ends the way it always ends...
I win :)

    1. Thanks Nadezda, they are pretty big birds and everyone moves out of their way. Luckily they don't stay all day so other birds can have their turn to eat too.

  7. Twoje ptaszki na ślicznych zdjęciach są niegrzeczne, bo się kłócą :). Pozdrawiam.
    Your birds on pretty pictures are rude because they are arguing :). Yours.

    1. Yes, Giga, they sure are rude with each other but they are brothers so I guess it's okay, all will be forgotten and they will be playing together in no time :)

    Have you ever consider writing an animation movie?
    I'm sure Disney or Pixar would welcome it anytime :)

    1. Ash, that is so sweet of you! I wish Disney or Pixar would do an animation with just birds, like Nemo did for ocean creatures, it would be amazing :))
