Hahaha!  He was a little distressed!  I think he landed in there and couldn't get out!  Poor baby!  He was relieved to be re-used!

TD, robins also make the nicest nests!  Pretty, lots of mud, very secure!

Fiz--Here's a Mourning Dove story; I had a grapevine wreath hanging on a little used 2nd door to my garage.  It was a favorite bird nest spot--protected on my porch, etc.  Had a Mourning Dove couple move in a few years back and started a family--me and the kids all watched daily the comings and goings....little babies growing you get it.  One day I come home, wreath, on the ground.  Nest intact, babies with barely feathered alive but spilled....fell about 5 feet.  PANIC mode....re-hung the wreath, repositioned the nest, secured the stupid wreath....and carefully placed the 2 babes in....lo and behold, parents arrived quickly, must have been watching.  And all was well, both fledged!

During the hottest part of the summer they put on a real show, dancing around and lifting their wings so Bob could give them a real shower with the hose. I could never manage to get one of those performances on video, unfortunately.

Also, the little birds would flock to the garden when I turned on the sprinkler system. They were so cute, flapping around in the plants and getting a good cooling-off. I love you

The neighbourhood crows are gathering "en masse" in the trees across from our house. They are making an awful racket with their calls. I feel like I am in Hitchcock's "The Birds" movie. Where I lived in England as a boy, the phrase "stone the crows" was sometimes used as an expression of surprise. I feel like going out and throwing stones at those crows.

Down the street we have a park with several soccer fields. A few days ago, Canada Geese covered two of the six fields. They were packed in there and must have left a ton of their ugly fertilizer on those fields before the snow came. I don't have a photo.

Hummingbirds quit using the feeders last summer, so I let them go. Now that the flowers are past it, I put the feeders back out. I was afraid I had waited too long, but they forgave me and came back.  okay

That’s cool, Suz!  Glad they are still lighting up your life, I love them!!!

This was a couple weeks ago, but my first snowy woodpecker, female, they love the suet bricks!
