The Google assistant (or whatever it is) read to me "According to Wildlife Gardeners..."

Nice to see WG still shows up in searches. You are internet famous!

That's nice to know!!! Fame has always eluded me, ha ha!!! As to your talking to your birds and animals, Dap, I do the same thing. My catbird knows me (it's a fact that they recognize one person from another), and he now follows me around to see what I'm up to. The other day I took the canvas backed chair down to the yard to read there for awhile. Almost immediately, the catbird was in the shrub behind me, not scolding me, as I've known him to do, but actually singing all the while I was reading. It was like he approved and was totally unafraid of my presence there...

I'm a big catbird fan!!!

I love that! What an awesome experience (for both of you).

This spring, I put out oranges for the orioles...the catbird was the first to find it. He loved them. I put out some almost every day, probably for weeks. I am now on his good side.

And you can be sure he was watching you when you were putting them out. You ARE on his good side, ha ha!!! A good place to be, as they scold fiercely!
