Lamont and Dude Murmur Sweet Nothings

“What?”

“A murmuration of starlings. I guess because of the noise they make.”

“Good lord. Well, they are certainly murmuratious, that’s indisputable.”

“Yeah. Murderous, too. I just came in from outside and I had to walk past their nest. I thought that mom was going to peck a hole in my head!”

“That would be redundant.”

Lamont and Dude are characters I came up with a few years ago. They have the uncanny ability to remember many of their past incarnations which gives them a unique perspective on life, the universe and everything.

  1. You think that

    ” HEAR the sledges with the bells —
    Silver bells !
    What a world of merriment their melody foretells !”

    would have a murmuration in it somewhere, wouldn’t you? What with tintinnabulation and runic forty times over, there should be at least ONE murmuration!

    No, that would be crows.

    • Starlings too. There was a nest in the gum tree outside my office in San Diego and every spring they were dive bombing us when we walked past. Not a murder of crows. A murmur of starlings. Aren’t they bird cousins, anyway?
