spring rolls

On several occasions over the past weeks, I have noticed a cute, fat-breasted robin playing in my backyard with a svelte, sexy-looking cardinal. These two can’t seem to get enough of each other. Is this an example of inter-racial dating in the animal kingdom? If it is, I am both overjoyed and curious to see what colour of egg pops out of big momma’s giant red breast.

Baby got back!!

I wish them both the best of luck on their journey of love. I hope they don't see you watching...

I'm just wondering how exactly you envision the egg popping out of the breast? Through the intercostal spaces? Through the nipples (ouch!)? Intersting thoughts, although torturous at best. FYI, the multicoloured egg will pop out of the cloacus, not the breast.

Dear Pesto,

What are you suddenly some kind of animal expert? A zoologist or something? I don't recall a veterinary studies degree in all of your educational accolades.

You are clearly the progeny of highly intelligent parents. Did they read to you a lot as a child or something?

Seriously sweet thing, thank you for the info. I am always interested in broadening my knowledge base, and I don't know anything about bird physiology.

I am back in the country, but not at home yet, got your email, and will give you a call tomorrow.

love you endlessly,
