My yard . . . supports a lot of wildlife. Right now, we're sharing space with several bird families.
We've got a family of sparrows tucked into this nest under the eaves.
Originally, it was a robin's nest. But they abandoned their yet-to-be-completed nest when they realized our patio is actually a Very Busy Place. The sparrows moved in less than an hour later!
There's a finch family living in this Boston fern hanging on my patio.
You can't see the nest, but every time I water the plant, Mama finch flies out in a huff!
Another finch family just moved out of the Boston fern on the left -- this one on my front porch.
I think of it as "graduation."
There are robins in the hawthorn.
I found the telltale blue eggshells under the tree.
And there are blue jays in my arborvitae.
And, of course, I got caught with finches in my Christmas wreath again!
At least it's a fake this year . . . but, still. Maybe some year I'll remember to take down my wreath in a timely manner. Like. . . before the finches move in!

The baby finches are getting big -- nestled in with the bird poop plastered to my front door!
In the meantime, just know that I'm happy to share my space . . . with the neighborhood birds!
