He's Back Again!

Yes, indeed-y do! I had someone show up at the barn this morning who has been missing this summer. You guessed it - Bran (pronounced "brawn") is back!
No sooner had I finished feeding the sheep and headed for the water hose to water the flower beds when I heard a very familiar squawking at the barn. There he was.
He was chatting away in what I can only assume was an account of his summer travels - I've been here, here, and here and ate this, this and that. And while I was there I saw this, this and that other thing. He honestly rattled on and on much the same as a second-grader returning from a summer away and making sure all his friends knew every-little-thing he did that summer. It was the same for Bran.
The only thing was, after telling him it did my heart good to see him again, was he switched to the "Where's my egg?" mode towards the end of his conversation with me.
So, like a friend, I did what anyone would have done...

...I went and got him an egg! Welcome back, dear friend!

Does he normally leave every summer?

As for eggs, good thing he returned to YOUR place, because MY place is woefully short of the things! Gotta get some new chicks....

Good for Bran. Lucky the brainless ones are laying or is it still the old hands

Michelle, yes...he does indeed "summer" away from here and has every year since 2005 - almost like clockwork. I usually give him the cracked or very dirty eggs, but yesterday I was so glad to see him I gave him a good one. :)
Val, the Chooks-without-brains are laying off and on but I'm even getting some of the older bantams eggs. The Brainless Ones are molting, hence the slowdown. One hopes with new feathers will come smarts, but I doubt it. heeheehee

That's wonderful news. I'd love to have a crow adopt us, but the nearest I think it's going to get is the pair of scrub jays who have adopted us - clearly not the same thing. Crows are awesome! Tell Bran I'm glad he's back.

Tell Bran that I look forward to seeing him in October. In the meantime, please put up a photo of that handsome lad.
