Fatso trouve un petit déjeuner délicieux

Les canards ont été mangés par des renards, les chevaux et des vaches sont satisfaites avec la nouvelle herbe de la saison et les moutons aiment paître heureusement. Mais Fatso, il aime aller l'explorer. Ici, je l'ai attrapé plongée dans la nouvelle et merveilleuse herbe. Il avait trouvé les plus nouveaux vers de l'automne dans la vignoble, derrière l'arrière champs .

Fatso finds a great breakfast.
The ducks have been eaten by foxes, the horses and cows are pleased with the season's new grass, the sheep are grazing contentedly.
But Fatso loves to go exploring. Here, I caught him diving into the new and wonderful grass. He had found the newest worms of autumn in the vineyard behind the back paddock.

Lovely darling. The early bird always gets the worm! Fatso has babies in the nest to feed.

Marie said...

Est-ce que Fatso est un oiseau apprivoisé? Si je comprends bien ça va être bientôt l'hiver chez vous! Bonne fin de dimanche à vous, M. et Mme Benaut!

Chez nous les vignes poussent à toute vitesse.

Hoorah for Fatso!
That's a gorgeous shot of the vines, Monsieur.

It's only one month to the start of winter; June 1st; Marilyn Monroe's birthday.
At the moment we are having great days of sun and mild conditions. It was 22° today, (Sunday), with not a cloud in the sky.

Fatso is really quite tame, Marie. Some of the older magpies will hop up on your leg if you are sitting and offering them food. The younger ones are comfortable when you walk amongst them, and they walk amongst the cats too.

Nathalie, I can imagine how nice it is, there; au Printemps en la belle France.

Dive, old son, thanks. Sorry I have not been too visible, lately. I will rectify that, as soon as poss. !

When I first saw this, it looked like a penguin standing in a vineyard. This is the kind of thing that prompts me to get off my ass and go find my glasses.

M.Benaut said...

Well; - they do look rather similar without glasses !!
Magpies just fly faster than penguins.

Hi Fatso! the magpie i mean!

Jules said...

G'day Fatso - what's that old worm song - Big ones, fat ones, juicy ones something ones?? Think I'll go and eat worms!!!! YUM!!!

MmeBenaut said...

Ha ha Jules: here are the words to this delightful ditty.


Everybody hates me,
Nobody likes me,
Think I'll go eat worms.

Big fat juicy ones,
Little teeny weeny ones,
Watch them squiggle and squirm.

You bite their heads off,
Slurp their juice up,
Throw their skins away.

And nobody knows,
How well we thrive,
On Woooorrrrrmmmmssss,
Three times a day!
