Yesterday morning I heard little scratching noises outside my kitchen window. After I pulled my cat away from the window, I saw a type of black bird dancing around on my stainless steel grill, which is about two feet away from said window. After fighting my cat for a good vantage point, I realized that the bird was flying away, coming back with a stick, disappearing into the back of the grill, then reappearing without the stick.
The bird was building a next in my grill.
It was so neat to watch.
I am certain Mr. Bird's conversation with Mrs. Bird that morning went something like this, "Hey, honey! I found the *perfect* spot for this year's nest!"
"Really?" Mrs. Bird asked. "Good, because that cottonwood tree we roosted in last year aggravated my allergies all summer long. Have you ever sneezed while laying eggs? It's miserable."
"You're going to love this place. It's this upscale condo I found. Sleek, modern styling. Fully enclosed to protect our hatchlings from wind and predators. You're going to love it."
someone has been here!
