Just a funny...

I dowloaded Firefox and made iGoogle my  homepage and added a virtual cat as one of my gadgets; when you move your cursor around the cat it either purrs or swats at it with it's paw. It happens to be a black cat like my Spirit. i was fooling around w/it when Spirit hopped up on the bed to see what I was doing and I made the virtual cat purr and she froze and stared at the computer! She never does that!! I got it to meow by waving the cursor over it's head and that was it; Spirit thought we had another baby she was going to have to "train". She looked on either side of my laptop trying to find the 'new baby" so she could check it out! (That's her thought process as I imagine it, anyway.) Just wanted to share a chuckle. :)

For some reason I wasn't able to post.  Anyway, there is a large flock of local crows, and undoubtedly some of the very same crows that were in that PBS special "A Murder of Crows", since they live approximately 20 years.  I think this area where I live is too condensed, so it seems that the local crow population pretty much stays in the trees.  None of them ever seems to be a pest around here or anything.  I rather like the ones that live here.  But, yes, they are large birds.  They're highly intelligent, too.  The species of blue jays that lives here is almost as large as the crows are.  And, just as bold and just as capable of bullying cats.  Although, none of them in this area has ever tried anything.  Only once did I get the privilege of seeing a blue jay land on the railing of my balcony one time for a little while.  Akira missed it, because she was asleep in the other room.

Jade, I'm definitely going to check out the video and see if I can interest Akira.

Aren't they too much? Bob does this thing where he runs down the hall as fast as he can, then flies up the wall to do a cartwheel-type gymnastic trick and nonchalantly walks away...only to repeat a few minutes later.
Jade, will try that video!

My cat peaches does the same thing. When we have our projector up peaches goes bonkers! We wiggle the mouse around on the screen and he will run up the coach, jump and swat at the cursor then runs back down.After he'll do this really loud run. It almost sounds like a horse running around in the house. He'll even run into a room then walk out like nothing happened. He's such a goof ball. :)

I've tried different songbirds or birds of prey-they liked the screech owl! Their faves seem to be the ones their used to hearing: mourning doves, blue jays, and the one that took me just forever to correctly ID: the red bellied woodpecker. (it kept directing me to the redHEAD which did not match my little birdie. Furballs Mom-do you get giant flocks of crows sometimes like out of the movie? They're horrible around here sometimes!! (I'm in the Hudson Valley) And BIG-they get on my porch roof periodically to check out my bird seed and they're as big as my cats!

He he.  I found one of those sites and when I played the northern flicker sound, the local crows started hollering.  So, I played the recording of the crow.  The site says it's a crow from Maine.  The local crows shut up at the sound of an outsider with a funny accent.

That's funny.  I should look for one of those sites again and try that again.  I've come across them before when doing similar research, so I know I can find it something with bird calls.  I should probably do it earlier in the day, during normal bird hours for it to work better.

They're always interested in what we're doing, aren't they? Bob is more aggressive: he'll just stroll right over the keyboard if nuzzling it doesn't get my attention quickly enough. I found a program when I was trying to ID some birds I've been feeding (I'm a regular Dr Doolittle) where you can choose a bird and it will do the bird calls for you-Bob loves that one! Of course I get him jacked up going "Bob!! Where's the birdie??"

Cute.  A few times Akira hopped up in front of the desktop monitor and would watch the regular computer cursor.  I noticed it one time when I went to move the mouse.  A few times she was watching the words appear on the screen as I was typing.  I guess I type at the right speed for it to be interesting to her.
