Friday Feathered Friend

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

It is not Friday but here here is a bonus Friday Feathered Friend from Rosa Marie.
"Just something to make the bird loving followers smile a little....
One of our resident blackbirds has decided that he would prefer bathing in our cat's outdoor water bowl rather than in our very posh and elegant bird birth! His sparrow mate had to make do with washing in the puddle created by the blackbird's vigorous ablutions!"

The top ten in order: Charlie, Bella, Poppy, Max, Coco , Molly, Luna , Ruby, Milly, and Archie. Milly is the only new addition to last year’s top ten – at the expense of Toby.
The list of more unusual names includes Captain Nana Spider-Pig Wolfstein The Second, Elgood Imperial Stout I Scott, Detective Justice Butterfield and Joan of Bark.
