Zippity Doo Dah

last night I was setting in the dining room and I kept hearing this tapping, like pebbles against the window.  At first I couldn't figure out where it was coming from but then I saw a small bird setting on the windowsill pecking at my window.  Once the cat noticed the game was on - seriously, Daisy would wait patiently, Ms. Bird would come pecking, Daisy would pounce and Ms. Bird would flit away just to return and start the game again a few minutes later.  It was very entertaining and interesting.  I've never seen a bird return again and again.  Maybe there was a tasty bug on the window.  I mentioned the visitor to the HotY and kids and they informed me that Ms. Birdie has been around doing the same thing for a couple of days now.  And this afternoon I looked out the window and there she was - just sitting on the windowsill.  I would like to think the blue bird of happiness was roosting right outside my very own front door but alas the bird is yellow...  The yellow bird of ambivalence???
