Maezi takes exception to…

We were hanging out in the living room & Maezi heard it before I did – she’s got really good ears.  Have you ever seen her ears?!  She saw a  Jay fly into the nest, but she barked & ran out the dog door to the Predator Preserve, got under the nest & started barking her head off – she chased it away.  She’s never done that before.  It all happened so fast.

Several hours later, it happened again, the same way.  She ran out to chase it away, barking loudly & vociferously.  She was quite insistent that it leave.

It must be the IntRuder – she never once made a peep when Jayne & Jayson were building the nest, laying eggs, sitting & brooding.  Never once.  They were our Jays.

    Oh no-I’m sorry about the eggs! What could have happened?

    Your buddy,

    Hi Bocci, well, I didn’t see what actually happened – but I surmise from the earlier dust-up with the IntRuder, that while Jayson & Jayne were on a break, then Ruder sneaked into the nest & destroyed the eggs. He must’ve eaten them, because the grasses in the nest were disheveled & pulled out of their smooth symmetry. There wasn’t even a bit of eggshell or any evidence that the eggs had ever been in the nest. Just like when the one egg developed a crack & I saw Jayson eating the egg contents & caught him on camera with the egg in his beak. At least I have memories & my photos of my beloved egglings. Your pal, Auggie
