The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Wrevenge of the wrens

Somebody apparently thought it would be a really cool idea to pry out all the birds' nests under the eaves at 42nd and Treadmill. It didn't occur to that somebody to remove all the nesting material from the premises, though, so while the War Council gathers in the cottonwood trees to the south, one nest has been rebuilt and a second is under reconstruction.

I don't think it's advisable to park over there today: those birds are pissed.

(Update, 1 pm: Three nests are now operational, and sentinels have been posted. They're not yielding this territory without a fight.)

Damn, I get sick and they decide to go to war without me. Perhaps it was the bird flu ... the doctors have no clue.

(Against the nest-removers, that is, not commenter Mel.)

I remember when the Grand Hi-Yu Mucky-Mucks reserved for themselves all the parking spaces in this zone, banishing mere mortals to the fringe area. It is only fair that their vehicles should accumulate the lion's share of, um, wresidue.
