The Vermin Conspiracy

The ducks have started waking us up at the quack of dawn (Ha! I slay me) and the flickers have started banging away on the neighborhood rain gutters in the annual "Hey Baby, Baby, Baby!" competition. Which means only one thing: the moles are using these diversions to tunnel their way into Vicki's garden. We're on to them! Stay tuned for updates.


  1. Too funny! We've had Flickas rat-a-tatting on our bedroom fireplace chimney insert at the break of dawn. It's very startling.

  2. yeah, they sound like machine guns. I know if I were a girl Flicker I'd be swooning.
