Why does dirt keep magically appearing back in while I dig a hole....

    I started digging some trenches for running water lines....All was quiet and no one really around. As soon as I get a line dug I look up to find amy yard full of ducks, turkey and chickens scratching the dirt and filling in my hole. My swans start picking up leaves and hay...throwing it into the hole....my emu keep eating the dirt that I'll need to use later on.... The geese are walking down the line falling in the hole.....and the guienas are hollering at all the craziness of everyone else.... :rolleyes: And hubby wonders why it takes me so long to finish a project.

    This reminds me of the time I was planting small trees. Digging and planting along the creek when I remembered I had not seen the Labrador. Where was she? Quietly chewing up each tree I had planted....[​IMG]

    I guess after inspecting for bugs they put the 'cleared' dirt back in the hole. They were probalbly very grateful to you for digging the hole.
