What was that?

A few weeks ago I was at a customer's house showing my crew what to do, when I noticed a big bad clump of grass up against a rock. "Damn!" I thought to myself, "these mow blow and go companies never clean up after themselves" I reached down to pick it up and something pink and furless scurried about underneath. I jumped up and screamed so loudly that I scared the %*&# out my crew, and they ending up screaming too.

Before I begin, I have some sad news. The next door neighbour's Jack Russell Terriorist lunged at the ladder that the Robins were nesting on, and he killed them all, just for sport. I was there, I watched it happen right in front of me in a matter of seconds and there was nothing that I could do. It was pretty traumatic.
