Everybody Needs a Place to Call Home 2

Our front door wreath has become a nursery, and I have feared that momma bird would abandon the nest. As I walked up to the door today, I ducked as a bird flew right past me.

That was a good sign and also as I got closer, there were 4 little fur balls all anxious.

All of the droppings on the rim of the next attest to momma spending a lot of time with her brood.

I don't hear them crying for her but hopefully we will get to see them taking first flight.

Ed, how fun to watch these eggs hatch and become birds.  Hope you do get to see their first flight.   Happy Father's Day.

Hi Ed,

What an adorable story - Happy Father's Day!

I had that happen to my home in Sedona a few years ago.  We were on vacation and came home to a nest in the wreath on our door.  The door had glass, and Mama would leave whenever we walked by.  I put cardboard up so Mama wouldn't see us.  But it is our main entrance to go outside in the front.  We relocated the entire wreath, and that was successful!

I have always enjoyed watching birds build their nests in my yard, and then watching the hatchlings eventually take flight.
