Last Friday I opened the back door to let the dog out and something yellow caught my eye up on the beams of the patio. I had been watching two little birds hang out in our yard recently, but it never occurred to me that they were checking out the specs for a brand new home.
Yesterday afternoon I checked on the darling duo, and they had been hard at work all day long. Now there firm, flowered, foundation was being feathered with soft desert grass.
This morning I tried really hard to get a picture of the birds in their nest (there aren't any eggs in it yet, they are still adding the final touches), but whenever I try they fly away. However, instead of just sticking my camera out the back door, I actually walked out in to the back yard and they did not like that! They flew around in the tree and on the block wall, chirping and squawking, and carrying on. It was obvious that I was too close for their sweet little birdie comfort. I caught a shot of one of them on the wall.
