And we have company. Mr and Mrs Bird. They are apparently expecting and decided to have their family live on our front porch. Here is the beginning of their nest. They are small blackish birds and Mr Bird has a red head. In the mornings they can be heard discussing the layout of their new home right outside our front door. It's been fun for the kids and I to track their progress. Here is what it started out like a week ago:
In the beginning most of the grass landed on the porch (and tracked inside our house). Now most of it stays put on the light fixture.
Can't wait to meet the 'kids'. :)
