The past few days, I’ve been hearing this bird with a rather loud chirp in our backyard. I had a feeling this bird was looking for somewhere to build a nest, and sure enough this morning, I found the nest right below our little balcony. I couldn’t resist this Kodak moment(or should I say Canon Power Shot A560 moment).
Edit – 5/4/08 – My husband had to clean the pool and that contraption you see by the bird’s nest is the pool vacuum. When he went to get it, the bird freaked out and flew away. He really didn’t mean to frighten the poor thing. The bird was hanging around on the neighbor’s roof waiting for my husband to go inside. Apparently, when my husband went in, the bird did try to go back to the nest, but I don’t think the nest was sturdy enough without that pool vacuum against it. We found the nest on the cement along with a cracked egg. 😦 We feel bad, but there’s nothing we can do at this point.
