Our four lovely, blue Robin's eggs are gone. We suspect the culprits are starlings we have seen zooming around the yard. Richard was appalled. "You mean there are cannibal birds?!" It is true that starlings feed on the eggs of other species but more often they are known as "egg dumpers". They will take eggs from another bird's nest so that they can use the nest themselves. We found broken eggs on the street below our tree. Sad. My one gladness is that the nest is gone too. I believe two little girls I saw the other night checking the nest probalbly took it home. I am glad. Take that, Starlings!
There is an analogy for humans in there somewhere, I am sure. I am too tired to think of one!
And speaking of tired...have you ever had a non-functioning thyroid? Mine was about as low as one can get. This explains my extreme fatigue all winter long. I also feel vindicated over my huge weight gain. Since taking the thyroid medication I have lost 7 pounds! (in one week!!) My metabollism is up and running again and feel like a blast furnace most of the day! Is anyone else out there as hot as I am? My Sweetie thinks I am hot!
