Front Door Secret Visitor

Last year a mother bird made a nest in the wreath hanging by the front door. This year I decided to hang a metal basket and add some artifical greenery instead of a wreath.

And once again, they made a nest with the cutest little eggs.

But sadly, the mother bird left before the the eggs hatched...

Awww! Hope she is ok. I know someone that had to stop putting a wreath on her front door, because of birds building a nest in it and then she had problems getting in and out of her home.

I had the same problem Glenda mentioned. I had to stop putting a wreath on one of our doors because a bird made a nest then abandoned her hatchlings. I guess she didn't like us going in and out. Its so sad.

I just put up a new wreath, but this one does not provide a cozy place to hide.

Interesting how birds choose places near the house. My parents once had a nest under the eaves near their sliding door out to the deck. We had to be quiet during the nesting time.

The birdies like you! Love that door hanger!

Thanks for stoppin by my blog and leavin such a sweet comment! I get all of my scrapbook paper at Hobby Lobby and only when it's on sale. They usually have it on sale for 4/1.00 or sometimes 6/1.00. I stock up then. Otherwise it goes up to some at 1.00 a sheet! They have the best selection and sales on it!

Thanks Again, Hope to see you again!
