A new tenant

image

I have this lovely wreath on my door that makes me think of spring. This year it is really making me think of spring. Does it look a little bulky on top? It should. It’s hiding a nest!

And inside that nest… Eggs!

These are real bird-laid eggs, not some clever decoration from the local craft store.  Our front door has a handy window right above the nest where we can get a little peek at eggs and mommy – though the bird is pretty skittish and I finally taped a piece of paper over the window so she wouldn’t take off every time we walked past the door.

This is the best picture I could get of her without scaring her off. But we’ve seen her up close through our front window when she has perched on our hanging baskets. I finally found a picture online – she’s a House Finch.

Isn’t she pretty? Big problem though. We can’t use our front door! Not sure how to handle people coming to the door…

  1. How cool! We’ve had some babies hatch out in our trees. They are so fun to watch…and they grow fast! Happy Spring!

  2. So cute. Thanks for sharing.
