    I have a webcam hooked up on the inside of the coop so that I can monitor and keep tabs of their behavior away from home. They ignore it most of the time but their keen eyes never miss a beat. When I checked in late this afternoon, Ruby (BA) was roosting close to the cam where it sits on its own shelf not fully secured (mistake #1).

    I decided to move the cam to get a better view, and to see if the third was close by.

    Did Ruby notice? Most of the time they just give The All Seeing Eye the single-eye-head-to-the-side treatment and leave it alone.
    I decide to move it again (mistake #2)

    Oh... OH! She did notice. I'm frantically screen grabbing, trying not to laugh too loud.

    At this point I'm telling myself to stop drawing attention but can't help it (mistake #3). Giggling ensues.

    [​IMG] High pitch stifled giggling for the rest of the series while keeping her attention by moving the cam.

    This was the last picture I grabbed before the camera was knocked over.
    I was heading home anyway anf didn't think to grab that last frame until I was home.

    So there you have it. I'll *try* to restrain myself better next time.
