Smorgasbord Blog Magazine – Weekly Round Up – August 1st – 7th 2022 – Hits 2000, Nina Simone, #Waterford, #Nutrition, Podcast, Book Reviews, Health and Humour

Welcome to the round up of posts you may have missed this week on Smorgasbord.

I hope you have had a great week.. The sun has been shining most days and this has meant that the last of the outside jobs on the house are well underway. Water has been a great attraction for the birds who already enjoy their outsize bathing trays that can hold a flock of starlings at one time. If there is a crow investigating ways to get into the bird feed pyramid we have built they seem to perform a synchronised Haka facing the intruder from the safety of the pool. Very entertaining and effective.

Charlie the crow is exempt from this behaviour and I do think they sense that his permanent disability of being unable to open his beak very wide makes him a non-threat. I had some double cream that had gone sour… and I know a certain someone who is very partial to a bit of dairy for some reason. I managed to catch Charlie in the act as he polished off the small tub ending up with the evidence all over his face.

Anyway they do provide plenty of entertainment through the kitchen window or if I am sitting in the sunshine. Apparently I am not a threat either and they chatter incessantly amongst themselves about the standard of the food and facilities… thank goodness they cannot access Tripadvisor.

As always my thanks to William Price King, currently on his summer break for the Breakfast Show and the life of Nina Simone. You can also find William Blog– IMPROVISATIONWilliam Price King on Tumblr

  1. I think I had managed to catch most of these posts through the week.
    I love the story of the birds outside your window, they can be quite entertaining.

  2. Thanks so much for another informative, inspring, and entertaining week Sal. And thank you for the mentions about my posts, and looking so forward to the new series here! I’m also glad to hear that Charlie is still hanging around and well. I will tell you, from my crow experience while in Mexico – those birds aren’t intimidated by much. I’ve even watched a few buggers open up bags of people’s potato chips, previously unopened. LOL. Hugs ❤ xx
