March and April 2010                                        8
The Friendly grouse ( aka partridge ) poses for pictures on March 18th
Most folks are greeted by the dog when they come home, but those on Packard Mill Road get greeted by this tame partridge
 that comes running out, chases the car if you do not stop, stands in the road  or walks along with you if you get out of the car.

     On March 25th , he shows up in the woods to walk along side my bulldozer, so I got camera and wife to record his social behavior ...above
Nuthatch on the left and , probably, a Goldfinch on the right

Tree swallows moving in to last years bluebird house.  Then bluebirds return and ....
Little do the swallows know that it is...
IT IS THE MAD BLUEBIRD !
He goes on a rampage, attacks the tree swallows, drives one to the ground and beats on it,
and attacks his own reflections in the house windows and the outcome is still unknown as of this writing.




 He brings to mind the Mad Bluebird photos on line. One such link is http://www.madbluebird.com/
