Raven and the French Fry Dilemma – p.2

August 12, 2011 at 8:25 pm 3 comments

That night, Raven went to sleep hungry and distressed. He didn’t want to fight the Cardinal but he certainly wasn’t going to stand by while another bird ate all his food again.

The next morning, Raven arrived earlier than usual to the parking lot. It had been a messy night and there were fries and other kinds of leftovers scattered all over. Just as Raven landed next to a french fry, he heard a terrible squawking, and before he knew what was happening, a gray and white Seagull came swooping in and stole the fry right out from under his beak.

Raven heard the chirping laughter of the Cardinal, who had also just arrived. He turned to face the red bird, and hopped over to stand in front of him. The Cardinal turned his small head sideways and looked up at Raven with one eye, as if to challenge him. He then pointed with his wing toward the other end of the parking lot.

The Seagull was busying himself eating all the fries.

    Used to put bird food out in the back yard. It attracted many birds, but then they attracted cats, who chased and mutilated/ate them. Got tired of finding feathers and body parts and so I stopped putting out food two years ago. All of the cats are gone but one or two, as far as I can tell. This story makes me really miss the birds in the back yard. Maybe I will try bringing them back. My favorites were the mocking birds, Cardinals, grackles, goldfinches, cowbirds, juncos, red-wing blackbirds and the doves. 🙂

    Raven, my unsolicited advice would be to get busy and eat your french fries while you still can. They may be outlawed soon. Sorry:-( I would miss them terribly, also.

    I would love to see your article, which was published in the newspaper a while back, “Mama’s Backyard Truck Stop and Feed & Seed” worked into this story in some fashion or maybe a stand- alone story. That would be awesome!
