House Wren

I’ve got a backyard squirrel who waits for me on the deck rail in his jumping pose and as I throw some peanuts out there I tell him “Don’t you jump, don’t do it squirrel!” He jumps every time and has to climb down the tree and back up on the deck. It’s just a weird little game we play. Well, the other day at the Celery Bog I came upon this House Wren who had assumed the jumping squirrel pose and I automatically said “Don’t you jump, don’t do it bird!” That’s when I realized I had completely lost my marbles! He didn’t jump though, not until after I got the shot.
