Can You Say Déjà Vu ??
If you reside in the Tri-State Area, you may recall an article on the front page of the Telegraph Herald newspaper on May 19th of 2007. The article was titled “Vehicle won’t be flying off the lot: Auto dealer won’t sell truck until baby birds in nest on tire leave” … and it started out saying, “A bird family weighing all of a few ounces is holding a 5,000-pound truck hostage outside of East Dubuque. A pair of robins choose an unlikely spot to build a nest — on top of the left rear tire of a red truck on the lot at Runde Suzuki and PreDriven Vehicles, a mile east of town on Highway 35. From the perfectly round nest tucked under the wheel well of the 2005 Chevrolet Silverado, the parents come and go, feeding three nestlings and scolding humans who get too close.”
The reason I’m bringing this up about one year later is that it’s happening again. I stopped up to the PreDriven store to take some vehicle photos yesterday and when I approached a used Chevy Tahoe, I noticed a bird fly out from under the rear wheel well. I walked back there and found a nest with a small blue robin’s egg in it. The bird that had flow off was either the expecting mama or papa and it stayed close by and kept chirping at me.
