|Bert and His Lovely Lady on the clothes line.|
I'm quite sure it's the same pair from last year. It's an obscure spot, yet them homed right in on it.
|Bert's Lovely Lady|
Last year we tried to encourage them to nest away from our side porch, but this year we changed our minds. Once we saw they wanted the same spot again, we readied the facilities.

Wayne made them a more secure nesting building spot than on top of the clothes line knot. Last year I worried every time the wind blew because the line would sway and rock the nest. In fact, during the winter it blew down.
|Wayne put up a shelf in the nest site.|
There they stayed all night until early morning flying bugs lured them out for a hearty breakfast.
I look forward to watching the birds right from my living room sofa. And picture taking should be a breeze.
Do you have birds nesting near your home? What kind, and how is it going? -- Margy
