Thank heavens for little birds

I had a special cage built because I like the little birds. The cage stopped the crows eating everything. Now I have a thrush with a glorious speckled chest but it looks as though it has swallowed a small football. It is fat and also a bully. It just sits there as though it is in charge of everything and won't allow any of the small birds near the food in the cage.
I get angry as it is there from the time I walk into my little office until I can't see the garden any more.
Realising that my anger was getting me nowhere, I asked a wise friend for help. She lives in the hills above Avoca and used to work in psychiatry.
