Wren Nest in Wreath,
I'm usually slow to remove my Christmas Wreath.
For a couple of years now, there is a wren who makes a nest in it. The wreath hangs on my front security door/glass.
Finch Nest with 2 Cowbird eggs
Well, I noticed that a wren would fly around when I open the door, not knowing there was a nest until I peeked from inside the house.
This year, there were 2 eggs, then 3, then 5, then 6. Pretty little eggs.
I also have a pigeon nesting in a hanging basket on my front porch too. I can't see its eggs, just the bird.
I love it. I love watching birds.
Can't wait til they begin to hatch. Hate to see them leave!
I have made a gourd into an area for nesting, but don't see anything in it yet.
I want to make it ready for birds to nest in. I want to make a home for Purple Martins to live.
Any ideas would help.
