Great recycling. I am trying to figure out how many little ones are in this nest. How sweet and exciting to be able to watch them grow.
Hi Angie, I was wondering too, I can see at least 4 beaks! Love Chris
Yes there are 4 !
Yes, she's building a nest this week on our carport light - very sheltered position. We had messy cars the last two springs, but such nice views - and entertainment for Sugartoes the cat.
They look so cute sitting in there all snuggly. I hope they don't make too much mess for you. Your doorbells are gorgeous! Love Chris
I use to hang ferns on my front porch, the birds would nest in them. I would have to look through the ferns to make sure where the nest was for me to water the plants, so I wouldn't drown them. One day I went to water and I pulled the leaves back and there was a big snake and the birds were no longer there. I thought they were safe there.
Sad story but , sometimes something has to die for another to live.
I'd probably be dead too...from a heart attack caused by expecting birds & finding a snake!
how wonderful to watch them grow :)
How lucky you are to watch them grow. Plus, they are outside so it is an easy cleanup when they leave. We had a pair of birds make a nest in the garage, it was a mess when they started flying.
For 9 years now there have been birds nesting in a flower pot on a metal stand on our covered patio that is viewable from the kitchen and living room. There are about 4 different "sittings" each season. They are delightful to watch and do not seem to be bothered when I do plant maintenance right under them. My sister had a nest and eggs appear on a wreath on her front door. She had to go through the garage to not disrupt them. Isn't nature wonderful!
How lucky we are to witness nature at it best.
absolutely perfect! I am so glad they are safe under your tutelage!
So lovely to see thanks:):)hugs
