Does everyone have these for "Door Bells".

When I due the spring clean up in my garden, I leave cuttings in piles for the the birds to make their nest. I was walking up to my front door and I see the cutting one the landing, and look up to a basket of silk plants , and the cuttings are all over the silk plants , and you guessed it a nest.
I have been watching them grow, it won't be long before they fly out of the nest.

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.

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 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!
