Hello. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your diligent doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel, with today's update of the ongoing grackle invasion. I think they should rename themselves the Great Grackle Flying Circus! 

This guy popped up on the window feeder this morning. He didn't even introduce himself, and immediately started complaining.

Hey! Still no seeds!

And hardly any suet left!

Oh that makes me so angry! 

Don't make me come up there!

Umph! Hey you stingy humans!

And your little dog too!

I'll have you know, this means war!

Oh, I'm SO scared!

Bark Bark Bark Bark! 



Harumph! I guess I showed him!

Oh, and look look look lookie look! We FINALLY have some flowers! 

It's spring!

(A few hours later … )


  1. Stoopid grackles! You tell him, Chester! Your daffies are so cheerful! We are still waiting to see our first burst of yellow!

  2. Wow, that Mr Grackle was certainly giving you the beady eye Chester, I am sooo glad to see you show him whos BOSS

  4. Chester you NY weather is crazy than NC weather. Love the Daffies and I hope they made it through the snow w/o any damage
    Hugs Cecilia

  5. You sure have your paws full keeping those grackles out of your yard. We couldn't believe our eyes when we woke up and saw how much snow we had on the ground. Oh well it's supposed to be in the 50's tomorrow.

  6. Nice work chasing that grackle away, Chester!
    I promise, spring will come to your house. It's already been to ours. Our daffies have come and gone, and most of our trees are past blossoming. Now it's baseball season! BOL!

  7. I tell you what Chester, the robins here have been so rude! Leaving poop and seeds from something everywhere

  8. He sure is a rude birdie!!! We hope they move on soon.

  9. A birds only real weapon is poop. Make sure you wear a hat when you go out. And you might want to bet a cover for the cars

  10. You tell that grackle, Chester!!
    Looks like Spring is teasing you!!

  11. Dear friend Chester,

    That is a grumpy looking bird! I am glad you chased it away!

    That is very sad about your hijacked spring, however. We hope it comes back soon!


  12. Bless your hearts! How can it still be snowing in April? BRRR! It's actually getting in the upper 30s here tonight. I hope those mean birds realize exactly who they are dealing with!!

  13. Oh Chester, WTD DUDE?! Still snowin' huh?? geesh. It's still rainin' here too, butts at least it was sunny this weekend. yucky week ahead though. I hopes you gets your Spring soon my pal.
    Oh, and good work chasin' that greedy grackle away! the NERVES!

  14. OMDog Chester ... what began as a not-so-good morning changed completely and I THANK YOU!
    You and Mr. G had me giggling and shaking from top to bottom: your photos and captions were just so perfect and so funny ... I loved them all. And so true! And good for you ... you did make him SCRAM!

  15. Keep up the good work Chester! And perhaps you can start chasing away that winter too! It's long overdue to have some spring.

    Klem, Mara

  16. Great job Chester!! So how's April going? I think spring is finally finally arrived. No more snow, YAY!! I hope you'll enjoy warmer weather this week.

  17. Hi hi hi! Ojo here! You are being gone from Blog-world for long times just like I am! I hope it is also because spring has come and it is way better to be outside than inside at a computer! (Plus my paws don't fit on the keyboard so well... It's better to lie out in the sun instead.) We hope you are well, we hope your nasty birds went away, and we hope you've had lots of spring sunshine!
