Birds, Birds, Birds

It has been quite a busy time around here!!

We are on the SECOND set of baby birds.....different mother, different species, same nest oddly enough!! If you clicked the link and look R.E.A.L.L.Y. close you will see some fuzzy white at the top of the nest...that would be roving that I placed on the tree branches several weeks ago.

We did a bit of yard work this weekend and despite digging deep into the bushes to be sure there were no birds nesting we found this nest AFTER cutting the bush eggs, thankfully!!

When I rounded the corner to the mailbox this morning I saw the door was open and the mail was half out of the box!! I have a VERY sweet mail lady and I know she wouldn't just throw my mail in the box like that unless there was a reason......imagining a snake I was surprised to see this:

Which interestingly, was NOT there on Saturday when I got the mail!!! This has been one busy bird!!! I guess I'll head down to the post office to have them hold my mail......not sure what kind of bird is making this nest.....guess word is birds welcome!!

LOL! That's too funny about the bird nest in the mail box. Word is out among the birds.

We have our usual nest of birds behind out front porch light. It's getting pretty crowded so I expect them to fly away soon.

lol I can't imagine finding that in my mailbox! Maybe they were looking for a dry place with all the rain we'd had?

Birds in the mail box is so cool! You have a nature preserve at your house! I bet the cats love it.
