Hi there my sweet friends, good morning! It's a great morning too! Super excited to share my find with you! I was out in the back doodling around and noticed some little birds swooping in under the eaves. I have a lot of 'regulars' around the back yard that come in close, my hummingbirds still come to the feeder, although they nest elsewhere, a lovely pair of Black Phoebes that flit around and often hang off the planter baskets, so it wasn't a surprise to have birds zooming in and out.
The little birds go deep into that sock like nest and you can see it shaking when they fly in. They're still building, I see them coming in bringing little flower petals and other stuff. Who knows what it is.
This is the backside of it, the 'door' faces out, away from our door.
I sat in my swing and used my zoom to get some pictures of the birds. Just not quite sure what they are yet. I had my bird books out yesterday watching, getting pictures, and trying to decide definitively. I'll let you know when I figure it out. Or maybe someone here will know.
They're very small, and they are fast. Soon my pink lemonade honeysuckle will be leafed out and they'll be hidden away. Now I just need to discourage that blue jay that keeps coming around. That bird is a ruiner for sure.
So anyway, sometimes life just holds an embarrassment of riches and you don't even realize it.
Ok, today I'm out and about, and then I 'll be back, and out back watching. Maybe I'll even pull a few weeds while I'm at it. What's on your agenda?
