    I mowed the lawn today in 30+o-it seemed like a good idea at the time.(faints)

      The pook boys are mowing mine several times a day every day lately. They hop up & over the fence & then walk around sticking their beaks down at an angle & clippin the grass at just the right height.

      They’re a bit haphazard & there are a few clumps of unwanted grasses they don’t like either, so they leave those, but they’re getting the whole back lawn done over time, I notice. I’ve had to clap my hands & shout NO! to Bluey a few times as he sometimes decides to pull a a clump out, hold it in his toes, & eat the roots. The other two don’t do that. They’re happy just being lawn moas.

        I have heard that they are destructive to gardens, but it’s easy enough to fence things off, one would think.If one can see the pooks, it would be worth it.

        I remember my mother and stepfather having things dug up by pooks and being driven mad by this-I forget how they combated it.
