This weekend was filled with all sorts of outside activities – watching Son #2 playing baseball, watching B playing softball, swimming in the pool (I am so glad we opened it in late April), and building a gazebo. And I realized that we humans weren’t the only ones so busy.
My wisteria has become the home of a bird family!
We noticed last week that a nest was being built, but I really thought it was too close to our steps that we use every day to get from the deck to the backyard. We went out on Sunday, removed the nest, and look what I found yesterday morning!
Those robins are very persistent. Now you must understand, this wisteria is growing up the railing of my deck, which connects the deck to the yard below. Not the most desolate location for a nest.
We will do our best to give this family some privacy, and hopefully the momma bird will be patient with us for using our steps. What’s really cool about this location is how close we can get to it. Other nests have been built under the supports of the deck, but we can’t really see what’s going on in there unless we look through the boards of the deck. Not a very clear view. But we will have a close up view of this family.
I’ll keep you posted on our new borders!
