Ziggy Eats like a Bird

A finch, to be exact...


Ziggy decided to pull a bag off of the table, and the bag happened to have bird food in it. Of course he then had to take a bite out of the bag, so when I picked it up a large amount spilled onto the kitchen floor. Ziggy was more than happy to help me out with the cleanup.


Don't worry mom, I've got this...


Uhh... Ziggy - you do know that is bird seed, right?



Huh? Oh okay...




I'll save a little bit for them.



These small black seeds are especially tasty.


Being a conscientious blogger, I allowed Ziggy to continue eating bird seed while I grabbed the camera to take a few pictures, and then a short video.

And by the way, he didn't save any for the birds.

Hey Ziggy, I eat bird foods too... sometimes.

Lola said...

If he eats enough of that do you think he'll be able to fly? A flying Ziggy would be quite something.

wags, Lola

Careful Ziggy, I hear too much bird food can give you a tummy ache. Better to skip it and just eat the birds.

Slobbers,

It's great to get my daily dose of Ziggy again.

Well, that settles it, Ziggy will eat anything!

Love, Cupcake

Apparently, Mr. Ziggy was in need of supplemental fiber. He is such a cutie patootie. Especially that look that says, "What?" with all the seed stuck to his muzzle.

I love me some Ziggy.

Oh, Ziggy, you're too cute with the seeds all stuck to your lips. And looking so innocent!

My dogs all like bird seed especially Samba who is convinced I'm trying to starve her. In the evening she puts her head in my lap and has bird seed all around her face.

We have never tried the birdies food - we just like that it brings them by us so we can watch them. It looks like it must taste pretty good though!

Kari in WeHo said...

thats exactly what I would have done in that instance :) the camera, not eating the seed

Lorenza said...

I was about to ask if bird food is tasty and then I watched you enjoying it!
Good job!

Ziggy, my sweet Ziggy. I just want to tell you that Symba is telling me to type the following message. It is not from the human.

Dude- seriously? Bird seed? That's soooo passe. You need to get your mom to hook you up with the bagels at Panera. Now the seeds on those things are off the chain! For real! Maybe you need to go to the homeopathy doctor that I'm seeing. Dude, text me...I'll hook you up bro. The liver flavored supplement rocks!

Peace out lil dude...you might want to pop an Immodium tonight. I'm just sayin...not that I've shared this same experience. Well, maybe I have...but I was probably a wee toddler like you.

Yo, and Coke rocks! Poo Poo on the Pepsi!

Haha! Brudder Ranger luvs to eats birdseed, too. But sometimes it makes his tummy upset so mom and dad try to watch him real close to make sure he doesn't eat too much of it off the ground.

Wiggles & WAgs,

You have to admire an opportunist. :)
