We interrupt your regularly scheduled program for this TDB Special Report. I'm your astute 
doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel. 

The other day we reported on a notorious poo-bombing campaign being carried out on ghostwriter's car in the driveway. Look at those gigantic splats! 

The lovely view from inside ghostwriter's car. Yucky!

We've been trying to figure out who the culprit was. Below is a picture of the spruce tree and the driveway that's been adorned with birdie poop. We can note that the trajectory of those poo-bombs points directly to that very spruce tree.

We already know Mr. and Mrs. Wormgrinder, the robins, have a nest in that tree about halfway up the left side. We've seen LuLu Wormgrinder sitting on the nest, while her husband Brad violently attacks any birdies who come near. Their babies only make little peeping sounds, so we don't think they're big enough to make those huge poo-bombs. (In case you didn't know, birds like robins and grackles feed their babies in the nest, and then carry away the babies' poops so the nest doesn't get all soiled.) 

Well, this evening, ghostwriter was looking out the front door at the possibility of a nice sunset …

… when look who flew out of the very tip top of the big spruce tree:

Ah-ha! That's a grackle! I didn't get a good look at it, but I think it might be Chuck Turdflapper or his wife Dimwitty. I could hear the nestlings squawking loudly as he flew out of the tree! Oh joy! There must be three or four of the little gargoyles up there!

I kid you not! Here's a picture of little Squatty Dingleberry from a couple years ago. If that's not a homely baby, then you need to get your eye balls checked!

Well, anyway, that explains where the poo-bombs are coming from. Ghostwriter told Dad that he'd better get the hose out of the shed and hook it up so she can wash the poopies off her car. 

But, I think she just wants to zap some of the Great Grackle Flying PTA (Poop Tosser's Association) right out of the sky! Seriously, it's not a good idea to get ghostwriter angry by pooping all over her car! 

Consider yourselves warned, birdies! 

Oh, and don't worry. Ghostwriter won't spray the babies with the hose, even if they are ugly. 

We now return you to your regularly scheduled program already in progress. 

Hey, it's a full moon tonight. Hi Princess!


  1. Oh, wow, washing the car will be the signal for those naughty grackles to put loads more on it, BOL!

    I can't see the moon here tonight...not only is it cloudy, its raining...sheesh, we have not had enough yet?

    Hey the rain might get rid of some of the doo-doos on petcretary's car!

  2. Dirty birds!! I hope your mom is a good aim with that hose!

  3. I'm just making a mental note not to poop anywhere near Ghostwriters car!!!!!!
    Oh, oh, is that you on the moon phone darling Chester……
    Loves and licky kisses

  4. I knew it was that nasty grackle before I had even read that far! Squirt him good, ghostwriter!

  5. It sounds like you conducted a thorough investigation on the poopers!
    Lily & Edward

  6. Chester GOOOD was about to say it looked like an ostrich poop but they don't fly. Grackles make us gag...noisy and just a nuisance....they must be in the Crow family sub category disgusting.

    Oh I love that you call our princess via the dreamy
    Hugs madi your bfff

  7. OMD...We sure hope the GW gets those poopy grackles!!
    Arty, Jakey & Bilbo

    PeeEss...We just loved that birdy cartoon!!!

  8. Your Ghostwriter needs one of those super duper water gun blaster to nail those nasty grackles!!!

  9. We are having a similar problem with Mrs. Bluebird around our house. She is attacking all the trucks of the guys working on our kitchen.

  10. We had no idea the birds would carry off the baby birds poop!!! UGH
    Mr Bailey, Hazel & Mabel

  11. Wow! Those are ugly birds. Hahaha! I loved that cartoon ♥

  12. Those nasty grackles! Hope their fledglings grow up soon so that you don't have to deal with them much longer. Love the "short"!

  13. HOLY CRAP BALLS! Dude, I am 100% with your Moms on this one! There is nothin' more disgusting than runny, messy burdie poopers! You are lucky that the Robins don't do what the hummingburds do..they just fling the poopie out of the nest! It can be super messy, especially if it's above a table like our burdie nest is! You gots to watch your drinkies! BOL

  14. I suggest trying to get a feather from a bird, do a DNA test, then do a DNA test of the poop, and connect it to the feather. The you will know who is at fault. Easy peesey
