  • - Spring is here, isn't it now?

  • [cheers and applause]

  • So then I would like to talk about

  • the birds and the bees.

  • [laughter]

  • We don't have a lot of time,

  • so I'm just gonna talk about the birds.

  • So we have birds at our house.

  • There's a beam right outside of our kitchen door

  • between the ceiling, and then there's the beam.

  • So there's a little area, and every year,

  • a pair of sparrows builds a nest at the same spot.

  • And it's adorable, and I love watching them.

  • It's one of my favorite things to watch.

  • Well, it goes "Scandal" and then...

  • [laughter]

  • Sparrows building nests and then "House of Cards."

  • That's how it goes. [laughter]

  • So anyway, so the female sparrow is brown,

  • and she blends in with nature, which is clever.

  • And then the male is very colorful and flashy

  • 'cause-- I think he's gay, and--

  • [laughter]

  • No, he's not.

  • He may be. I don't know.

  • But anyway, it's amazing, because nature--

  • the females are-- blend into nature.

  • The males are brighter

  • so they can distract the predators

  • from the lady birds.

  • Very nice.

  • So anyway, they're cute,

  • and the male is the little lookout.

  • He hangs out and looks around and chirps,

  • and the female brings the twigs,

  • and they flutter around, and they build the nest.

  • And then sometimes I put my finger out

  • and they land on it and chirp, and we sing, and--

  • I made that part up. But--

  • [laughter]

  • They're adorable.

  • They're birds, and so they're cute.

  • But here's what's happening now.

  • There's this-- this thing is happening.

  • Another pair of birds saw that spot

  • and thought, "Oh, that's a good spot.

  • We're gonna build there."

  • And so they started building.

  • And then-- at first, I didn't know.

  • I thought they were the same kind of bird

  • 'cause they look alike, you know?

  • So then they're building.

  • Then another pair comes,

  • and they're like, "Oh, no, you don't."

  • I mean, they're not talking, but--

  • [laughter]

  • So then they tear the nest down,

  • and then another one builds,

  • and then the next morning, it's torn down.

  • And this has been going on--

  • they're like rival bird gangs.

  • [laughter]

  • It's like East Coast-West Coast kind of thing, you know?

  • Except they're both on the West Coast

  • and they're not gang members, so...

  • [laughter]

  • They're birds.

  • So it's nothing like gang members.

  • So anyway... [laughter]

  • I did what anybody would do in L.A.

  • I started filming it for a new reality show

  • called "Bird Wars."

  • [laughter]

  • I'm gonna sell it.

  • No, that's not what I did. I got up on a ladder.

  • I went and got a ladder, and I put some wire mesh

  • on the spot where they're building the nest.

  • Portia took a picture of me doing it.

  • And Portia took that picture right after she said,

  • "Yes, of course I'm holding the ladder," and--

  • [laughter]

  • I was like, "Why are you so far away?"

  • Anyway, they weren't getting anything accomplished

  • because they kept tearing each other's nest down,

  • and it's not a great spot anyway

  • 'cause my cats go outside in that area,

  • and, of course, cats go after birds.

  • In fact, I took a video. Look.

  • [quirky dramatic music]

  • [music continues]

  • [horn playing dejected tones]

  • [laughter]

  • It's my cat.

  • But, no, here's what I did.

  • I tried to block it

  • because they're running out of time

  • because they need to finish their nest

  • so that they can lay their eggs

  • and sit on them until their babies hatch.

  • Like human women.

  • [laughter]

  • I've never had a baby. I don't know.

  • Anyway, I'll keep you posted with any new developments.

  • That's what's happening right now.

  • But right now, it's time for this bird

  • to shake her tail feather.

  • [cheers and applause]
