Maybe. But not at 4AM.
4AM every morning for the last week. Two babies plus their mother climb the deck each night to check out the bird feeders, wash their hands in the birdbath and get a sugar rush from the Hummingbird feed.
It doesn't matter that the bird feeders have been empty for days and I am now bringing in the Hummer water each night.
They still make the deck rounds each night.
Making that crazy raccoon chitter-chatter noise.
The group then heads to the empty trash can.
(I know Cute Husband will be disappointed if he doesn't get to take out a month's worth of trash when he returns ---see trash issues here).
They climb the trash can and rock it until they knock it over and sniff the stuff inside.
Not exactly a comforting sound coming from the yard in the middle of the night.
Last night, however, they showed up without mom.
I did my usual 4AM yelling and stomping which normally gets them right off the deck.
Not this morning. Both kits headed straight for me and the open door.
Hungry and fearless.
Plus, super cute.
It took every bone in my body to not got out fill up the feeders, bring out the sugar water, throw the trash in the can and make them an apple pie with ice cream.
