Spring has finally arrived. A clump of mini daffodils is blooming in the front garden.
Outside our bedroom window a robin has her nest in the birch tree.
Saturday was a beautiful sunny day, so I was working in my flower beds and checking out the yard to see what was coming up. As I came around the back side of the house I noticed there was fresh mulch on the ground in a strip about 6 feet by 2 feet. I couldn't imagine where it came from.
Coming around to the front of the house I saw that some bird had been building a nest on the brick ledge. Not a wise place for a nest...I'm sure the wind has been blowing the twigs and grass on to the ground....our new mulch.
Looking up I also noticed another bird was constructing a nest above the shutter. I've seen sparrows in and out of the bird house....so I think we have a nest there too. (You might notice that the shades are down in the window....we are trying to detour a robin who keeps flying at the window...he must be seeing his image and think it's another bird?)
