Just outside the front door to your left as you walk out the front door is a hanging basket with some flowers.
We also spied something else in there…
So this is the nest that some house finches made in the hanging basket — nicely protected from the rain and most of the elements. (Though they’ll have to deal with watering!)
So, this brings the count up to:
- One nest of mockingbirds (already fledged)
- One nest of sparrows (in the bush on the opposite side of the mockingbirds)
- The house finch outside the front door
- The bluebirds living in the birdhouse near the garden
- Two barn swallow nests in… wait for it… the barn
I just feel so dang lucky to be around all this in my life.
