Our garden has been the center of violent street gangs for over a month now. They are very aggressive, and no one dares to go to our garden. Very strong and tall men like our groundskeeper surrendered: he was too afraid to cut the grass!
So who are the gangsters of our backyard? May I introduce – Mr. and Mrs. Bully Gull *shudder*
Two chicks fell off our roof in the beginning of June. Mr. and Mrs. Bully Gull took Darwin’s law into their own claws and turned our garden into a nursery. One of them was always on parole, and oh my, they really took their duty seriously. Not only did they attack everybody around our house, but also threatened us poor cats when we were on our catio.
Mom has somehow succeeded to take a picture. She was so in love with this little fellow.
On a sidenote – I’m a very talented predator! I knew something was going to happen there! That’s me, next to the hiding spot of the chicks. I was in the right place, but unfortunately at the wrong time – about 2 days before our yard turned into a gull zone.
Since the nursery opened, it has been difficult to go out. Mr. Gull scared the bejesus out of me, and I hid for a long time under Mom’s bed after we got in. On top of all, Mom didn’t feel sorry for me!! She said she understands that Mr. and Mrs. Gull have second thoughts about me, casually walking outside and minding my own business.
Mom has checked upon the chicks whenever she got a chance. It’s nice that she’s so concerned, controlling that they thrive nicely, preparing to become the main course of our big feast!
That’s our little chick one month later, almost grown-up!
He’s now a juvenile! Mom saw that he’s training his wings, and she believes he’ll soon learn to fly. Wonderful! Best time to reap the harvest: he has grown a lot, but is still vulnerable enough to get caught!
So keep tuned, we’ll share pictures of our epic feast anytime soon!
