There is a very mean mommie at the castle!
She has terrorized our pyewackit, so much that the poor cat won't go out the back door.
She has whapped Ladybug on the head when she was displeased.
She screams at everyone that has stepped a foot wrong.
What are we going to do here at the castle?
Here is the mean mommie right before one of her attacks.
She is all worked up because her baby bird has jumped down from the nest and is hanging out in the back yard. If anyone enters the back yard she screams and screams. We have twice seen her beating up our cat, who formerly was a prolific bird hunter. Who knows now with all the trauma? Ladybug got a little too close and was pecked on the head for her transgression. It's a good thing that mean mommie didn't catch Ladybug a few days ago when she climbed the tree to get a picture of the the nest.
Here is the cute little baby that is not afraid of us at all and is very nice. It must have had its nice genes passed from the daddy magpie.
Maybe we should make allowances for post pardem and all those "new mom" excuses. Maybe it is the mean mommie's first baby and she is just over protective. Maybe she better get over it soon or she might get a pellet to the head as soon as baby can fly!
