|photo from kitchen window 2010|
This little beauty lives with his wife in our trees... .
He and his lady were really busy for a week or two, sitting on the window sill of the kitchen, then the bedroom, flying in and out of the bush and I thought nothing of it... just watched with pleasure from bedroom or kitchen window.
The flowers make it perfect for camouflage... BUT they built there new home right where you see the arrow.
NOTE: this is Jake Territory... as in he could stand on his hind legs and grab baby birds with no trouble at all.
for a couple of days she sat in the nest and I was fretting big time, afraid she would hatch noisy babies that would become dinner for Jake.....one day after I stared at her many times, she flew away, and I checked the nest.
IT"S EMPTY I shouted to Bob.... and I removed it from harms way....
Check out the DETAIL... so much work, so delicate and I felt horrible moving it. But I would have felt worse if the unthinkable happened.
They thought they were hidden, but had no idea they were to close to the ground. anything could get to them, and we do have black snakes.
Each piece places carefully, just where it needed to be and the thinnest of pine needles to make the center.
