This is Leo. I’m going to tell you about Finnegan and the Tufted Titmouse.
A couple days ago we noticed a bird hanging around our dog, Finnegan. The next day, we watched him grab beak fulls of Finn’s fur. Finnegan was resting and did not notice that the bird was pecking his bum fur. This happened many times during the day. My mom said that the Titmouse was like Finn’s little remora fish. Our theory is that the bird was using the fur to make a nest. We took a video of it happening so you can see it:
We just haircuts and we thought it would be cool to put haircut hair outside in the yard to see if the bird took it. Our theory was that the bird would like the haircut hair, but it seems the bird likes Finn’s bum fur better.
We looked up the bird in our nature guide and we figured out that it is a Tufted Titmouse.
Somewhere there is a little egg hanging out in bum fur.
