We've had quite a few birds choose our yard for their home this year. First we had this robin family make a nest in our trellis. I called the babies Morsel & Tidbit - which is what they would've become had they fallen out of the nest and into the jaws of one of our hungry beasts.
Then while ripping out a vine growing in our forsythia bushes, I got screeched at by an angry mama bird, and discovered this:
And most recently, we have a new nest on top of the column on our front porch. I was hoping to see babies hatch (I could see this nest from the window in our foyer), but sadly, the nest blew away in a storm.
