Hello everyone. So you know I love birds right? Well look what this little pair of birds built right outside our front door! This is such an interesting nest. It has hay soft grass in the middle with this mossy stuff on the outside. And we had just picked matted hair off the cats so lots of that made it into this nest too. I even cleaned the girl's hair brushes and layed some of their hair up there......the birds LOVED that. The nest now has this soft lining of red hair! Problem is that the nest is right on top of the light fixture which is next to the front door. And that chair is where my mail man and UPS guy leave my packages. Dear Husband was not happy about this nest one bit. Said the birds would poop all over the place.
Then there's this little cutie named Frisky. She's a real bird watcher too....not so good for the birds.
And here's Hammy and Emma. Look at Hammy, he's already licking his lips!!!!
Well, Dear Husband decided to let the birds live there because he knows how much I love them. He's a nice guy with that kind of stuff. So what happens then? He goes outside the next day through the front door. Marches right back inside and carries me his favorite KU t-shirt and blurts out, *LOOK WHAT YOUR NICE BIRDS DID, THEY CRAPPED ALL OVER MY FAVORITE SHIRT!!* After I spewed my drink a little bit, I told him that back door guests are best....use the garage door, dear!! The nest is staying.
So then Jordan and I got creative and decided we needed to make a sign. We thought it should say *Beware of the Birds*.......but I think now it will read *Every Birdy Welcome*. Jordy got some REAL artist watercolors for her birthday last year so we paint every chance we get. I helped her sketch out a bird and a nest and had a little coloring lesson. Didn't she do good? I need to add the words and frame it. Then it's going to hang outside under the light with the bird nest. I'll post the finished creation later. And guess what? Eric boosted Jordy up to see the nest today....FOUR speckled tan eggs. Which means they're just simple barn swallows. Which annoy the heck out of my dad when they get in his barns. But Jordy and I love them and we can't wait to see the babies. Although they will be dead ducks if they fall on the porch while learning to fly. Our kitties are bird stalkers!! More later on the bird story!
