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
