Birds, Rip, and the Audacity of 2020

We have an invasion of Pine Siskins. They are a rather gregarious and loud group who travel and feed in flocks. They have been very aggressive at the feeders and are not easily put off. They are not at all friendly and will take over all four bird feeders, chasing off one another as well as the other breeds we normally have. I shot a couple of quick videos to give you a small example.

The second video I shot through the screen so as not to scare off the birds feeding on the ground.

Today’s InkTober prompt is RIP. Now what am I going to do with that? Ripped jeans? Rip Torn? Rip Van Winkle? This might be the toughest prompt for me yet.

And folks, 2020 brings us Webster’s adding the word “irregardless” to the dictionary. Just when we thought grammar was safe. Even Jamie Lee Curtis complained on Twitter. If you love grammar, you might enjoy this article.

Enjoy your Friday before civilization as we know crumbles into oblivion.
