General Mockingbird has been gathering his American Robin troops and military Blue Jay planes which have been dropping bombs for the past week. Their mission: to take out THE BERRIES and THE STARLING GUARDS.
Their plan was for the robins to gather as many arms as they could and to take out all berries in a mass descent. The Blue Jays were to drop poop bombs on the starlings. General Mockingbird’s position was up in the trees watching his robin soldiers take out the berries.
Saturday morning 0800 hours…
General Mockingbird wasted no time in assembling the troops. The Blue Jays were ready. The American Robins were ready. American Crow snipers were on standby in a nearby cornfield. Canada Geese planes intimidated the berries in a flyover.
General Mockingbird called, “Blue Jays, bombs away!” “Robins strike!”

Saturday 1300 hours…
All of a sudden General Mockingbird was being attacked by starling troops. They came from both sides. General Mockingbird had no choice but to attack. With the help of an ally Downy Woodpecker, he got away and the Blue Jays were there to back him up.
Saturday 1500 hours….
The berries never stood a chance. Although the starlings got their fill, General Mockingbird and his troops were the ultimate winners. Will the berries and starlings come back for another battle next year? We’ll just have to wait and see.
