Disguising himself behind that little rose bush, Ned was pretty sure no bird stopping in for a snack would see him, until it was too late and the bird became the snack. That kid sat there ALL DAY one day, I swear. Every time I looked out the window, there was Ned, trying to blend in to that bush. I had to go out and check on him at one point, I was afraid he was hurt and couldn’t move, but no – he was just Determined to stay there until his patience paid off. Sadly for him, but I guess happily for the bird population, he had to admit Defeat by the end of the afternoon.
But don’t Despair or feel sorry for him; he got a 1/2 scoop of breakfast crunchies to go with regular wet-food Dinner for being such a hard-working little fellow.
