The Birds


A few years ago this birds nest appeared here and a mean ol' crow got ahold of the babies and that was the end of that.  

The nest was abandoned.  But since the nest is just outside of our office window, we decided to give our customers something to look at. 





A mama wren, looking for a place to nest, showed up a few weeks ago.  Imagine her surprise when she discovered the petrified counterpart nesting there.  She pecked at her a few times just to make sure there wasn't going to be any trouble... then she made off with some of the straw.  





It seems she was building just yards away in a
much safer place.  


The crows have been showing interest...  but we're trying to keep them away without scaring mama and papa wren.


We're looking forward to being grandparents again...
