Woman Writes Note Asking Neighbor To Stop Putting Bread In Birdbath — Then Catches Real Culprit
The truth is pretty funny.
Ann Dixon started experiencing the weirdest issue about six weeks ago. On her front lawn, someone kept putting bread in the birdbath.
Dixon told The Dodo, “I believed a bystander was throwing it in there.” “I know that giving the birds bread is not the best food for them, and it also makes the water quite filthy, so I was irritated that they were doing it. If I caught it in time, I used to scoop it out and change the water.
The bread began to regularly turn up in the birdbath. Dixon admired whoever was trying to feed the birds for their perseverance, but she also didn’t enjoy having to remove bread from the birdbath every day. She made a notice politely asking her neighbors to cease, attached it to the birdbath, and crossed her fingers in an attempt to deal with the matter.
Naturally, the sign wasn’t functional. Continual deliveries of bread and even some french fries were made. Dixon became increasingly irritated until she at last identified the offender.
Dixon reported seeing a crow on the edge of her garden carrying a complete bread bun. I remained motionless as he gave me the evil eye. After landing on the edge of the birdbath, he dropped the bread roll into the water and continued to strut over the lawn. The realization that he was responsible struck. I was so stunned that my face could have been painted. I hurried inside to tell my husband because I had been whining to him about this strange bread for weeks.
Dixon initially believed that one of her neighbors had dropped the bread in her birdbath. It was actually simply a crow attempting to rehydrate his meal. It makes sense why her sign was ignored. The offender was unable to read it.
Dixon took the note out of the birdbath once the riddle was clarified. She still sees the birds come by and leave their bread behind, but she is less bothered by it now. Where they’re getting all that bread from is the next puzzle she needs to solve, but she’ll get to that one another day.
