Zoe's newest job

I have to laugh, Zoe just likes to mother things.

I have two new babies in my currant bush near the house. Two baby gold finches hatched a few days ago and Zoe has taken to guarding the bush. She lays there all morning while the parents are feeding the babies, they don't seem to mind her at all. She snaps bugs out of the air that get too close to the bush, and then last night she was laying there and suddenly went on alert and into protect mode. I knew something was close by but couldn't see anything, either could my neighbour. Zoe started stalking something, and then chased a cat out of the near by bushes that was creeping up on the nest.

Way to go Zoe.

My neighbour is an avid bird watcher, and she gets a laugh watching Zoe all day. She went and bought finch food and put to socks of it up in the two nearest trees, so the parents don't need to go far for food.

So they have food and protection.......and Zoe gets to do a job!!!
