Morning Calls

I just keep giving Rare Find reasons to dislike pegasi during spring, it seems.

You think it can be bothersome to be awoken by screeching birds way too early in the morning? Try to exchange that to your pegasus neighbors calling out for attention and shouting empty threats at one another while cat calling mares for their attention.

This piece took a few revisions to work and I ended up not adding in text as originally planned. Letting the image itself tell the story instead. I think it didn't turn out too bad, though I know it's not perfect in some details. But oh well.

Enjoy!

If birdsong is beautiful then why isn't pegasus song beautiful too?

Because with pegasi the supposed "song" is translated to what it really means. Constant threats at any competition and cat calling the females.

And in that moment, the plans for the very first gun in Equestria were being meticulously formed in his head :nod:

Ever hear a flock hadeda ibis? I'd imagine a big, boisterous flock of pegasi bribs would sound like a mix of that and chavs.

The more I see of Rare Find, the more I feel sorry for him.

I could just see a back story for him where he is a a nervous, stressed-out, jittery unicorn who's has left Canterlot to some small, country town to escape the tense, stressful Canterlot life for health reasons.  He has never lived with pegasi, so he does not know what to expect and commits faux pas after faux pas:

He puts up a birdbath like what he had in Canterlot, and all the pegasi think it is for them and splash around in it.

He puts up some bird feeders, and all the pegasi (or at least Blossomfortth) thinks he's leaving snacks out for them.

He tries to plant a small vegetable garden (peppers and nightshade for his home-brewing alchemy hobby) and all the pegasi eat the fruits and roll around in the dirt as a dust bath.

He tries to decorate his garden with shiny ornaments, but all the male pegasi (especially Zephyr) keep stealing them for their courtship bower displays.

You know how many eastern European cultures believe storks bring good luck and fortune and build nesting platforms on their roofs to attract a mated pair? It would be funny if earth ponies and unicorns living in the countryside did something similar with pegasi. All his neighbours see Rare Find as a really friendly unicorn who goes to great lengths to attract pegasi. Rare on the other hoof does not know he is unintentionally propositioning to all the pegasi living in the town and just wishes all the horse birbs would simply SHUT UP! so he could get some sleep.

Poor Rare Find indeed XD
 
Luckily it only happens during spring, but all that still is plenty to cause quite some additional stress.

For added pegasi obnoxiousness: "Everybody's heard about the bird!"

Nothing worse than being woken up before you want to! ಥдಥ

I rememberthe other day there was a skirmish between ISIS and Kurds just a few blocks down as not all the militants have been kicked out. So glad to finally see it being done and that Iraqi security forces are some handsome men.....
