We're Being Stalked!!!

Well, actually, Birdy Boy is being stalked. Every morning when I come out of the shower and go into our bedroom, I find a Raven sitting on the wire outside of the window staring at Gico. It's been there for over a month now. I'm thinking it knows we have a small bird inside and he wants to eat him. Gico hates seeing it; his little feathers squish against his body and he makes a cricket sounding noise that he always makes when he's nervous.
This morning, I took Aaron to school during my normal "getting ready for work" time. I also brought Gico bird with me, because he absolutely loves car rides. Well, low and behold there was the Raven, sitting on the telephone wire staring at us. I held Gico tightly in my hand, but he still saw the Raven and started making his "there it is again!" noise. The Raven followed our every move and starred at us as we drove away.

I'm not sure what to do about this Raven. The birds I had before Gico used to be stalked by Ravens all the time when we lived in Arizona. Eventually, the Ravens realized they couldn't get to them and it wasn't worth the trouble. I hope this is what happens here.

Well, that's all for my story du jour. I hope you have a wonderful week. God Bless!

Love Lauren

Note: This isn't the same Raven, just a pic I found online :-)

Poor birdy! I hope they tire of it and leave him alone!

That is horrible! :( Poor little Gico! I don't know what I'd do in that situation, but I hope the Raven tires of his interest quite soon!
