Silly birds, don't you know any better? Building a nest on our deck support, just inches from our outdoor eating area and barbeque, not to mention we have four noisy kids and a dog. But it must be prime real estate, because after taking off a year, the birds are back again. I was thrilled to discover the new nest, having the experience so up-close and personal is so much fun for the kids (and for me!)
This year's nest didn't contain the decorative toilet paper accents, like the last one. We haven't had our house TP'ed in a while, thankfully. So, poor Mr. and Mrs. Robin had to use flowering bushes for their decor. I didn't manage to snap a pic before the flowers wilted, but you can still see the drooping greenery around the outside of the nest, if you look carefully.
The nest is on the upper deck in our sloped back yard, so the birds aren't comletely out of their minds, since the support they built on is a good 14 feet or so off the ground. Oh look, I think you can see some little droopy white flowers.
Mrs. Robin. She's kinda mad at me. Mr. Robin will dive bomb you and hurl insults, but Mrs. Robin mostly just gives off the bad vibes and hits you with her evil eye.
