Every year about this time we get migratory flocks of birds that stop by the inn for a few hours and strip every berry on the property (okay, just the holly bushes and trees) before moving onto their next island stop north. We usually have at least 25 different species of birds completely covering the property in true Hitchcockian fashion - kind of like a little UN festival in our yard. Today, however, it was just the Cedar Waxwings who got the jump on the rest of the bird world in a unified front and stripped us clean leaving nothing for their slower brethren who are sure to follow. I'm concerned that a) there is a rift in Birdworld and that they're taking on an isolationist stance and b) everyone else will show up later and we'll get a bad review on TripAdvisor because we have no food for them. I guess I'll go get some bird feed. They are returning guests after all.
