nesting


Like a crack ho, mother robin had appeared to shirk her responsibilites to her last remaining egg. She hadn't been in her nest since the last post, until today. I guess she's giving it another go.

Not sure if the eggs are both fresh, or if one is old. I would imagine she ditched the last one and layed two more.

Happy Mothers day Mrs.

Was attacked in Lincoln Park yesterday. A new gossling and I got too close to each other and the parents stretched their wings and headed for me. Just cleared them and some small bird swooped and knocked me in the head twice. I must have been close to a nest.

Here is another nest I found tucked away this entire time. This mother is much more attentive

Creeper-

We moved in here January 2011, and that spring a robin family built a nest on our porch. The kids loved watching them. This year, the robins moved to the north column and some other smaller birds took over the south column. I haven't ID'ed them yet though. I went out and snapped some pics this morning...

If I were bird I'd like that spot as well. Plenty of free in house dining, I'm sure!

They do like the bugs that congregate on our porch. That, and the educational value for the kids, makes them well worth having. They'll be gone in a month or two...they nested much earlier this year compared to last year.

Ain't nature a beaut.. If you leave the nest alone they may come back again before fall. The nest on the hydro box was built last summer and they had two or three batches. They came back and added a bit to it this year.

That's what I meant. Them nooks and crannies are perfect feeding grounds. I wish birds would nest around my home, take care of all the bugs but nnooOOOOOooooooo. What do I have? Stray friggin' cats, a family of 'em.

When I was a wee little youngin' my father had chickens and ducks and even carrier pigeons in the back yard. That was, well, smelly.

I once had a farm house with a mouse problem, so on a whim one day I went to the shelter and grabbed a cat. Now I'm stuck with lazy cat who is too fat to groom his own fur properly so its all knoted. I call him Rastacat

I have an old shed on one side of my home, in the back yard. The mother cat broke through the soffit of my roof, gaining access from the top of the shed. She had her kittens in my attic. Inevitably they all used the restroom up there which is simply disgusting. How I found out was the kittens fell down inbetween the walls, meowing for their life. The last one only fell down after I went up into the attic to see what was going on. He was there one second, gone the next. I ended up having to cut a 12" x 12" hole in the lower dining room wall to get them out.

It was actually a cute picture when I cut the wall and the three were all huddled up all scared but still, I was not happy.

They are all gone now, thanks to the dogs.
