For the past few years, we keep witnessing a phenomenon that is, quite frankly, getting a little freaky! We call it the ‘Peckasso Phenomenon’. The first time we saw it, it was pretty cool. A bird seed block that had been pecked to the point of an interesting organtic form….
We had been putting bird seed blocks out for many years, but had never seen anything like this. I’m not sure if it’s just because we never noticed, or the birds pecking it had never created such an interesting piece of ‘art’.
So, after this, we did notice!….It was hard not to notice, because now, every bird seed block that we put out is transformed into something! But what’s weird, it’s not just any something! It’s always a sculptural representation of the critters in Todd’s Backyard. For instance, the next creation was on a seed block out in the middle of the yard where lots of rabbits hang out….
Then, right after Gerti, our tortoise, came to live with us, this is what we found at the seed block that was just outside her enclosure…
Ok.. you might be thinking, tortoises don’t stand up like that. Well, Gerti actually does like to pull herself upright along the wall…kinda weird.
The next installation was created, again, on the seed block in the middle of the yard. It was in the spring when all of the quail are running around with their babies…
Maybe a stretch, but, hey, I can see it!
Can Peckasso top this one? I think so!
We were astounded to discover this last week on the seed block that sits right outside the chicken coop…
Weird, True, Freaky!!!
