In the picture above, there are 3 birds. Can you find them and name what kind they are?And next, for you bird and nest lovers - - - 3 birds built nests under the floor of our covered porch! I don't know what kind of birds they are - they don't look like barn swallows to me - but they move so fast, it is hard to tell for certain!
The next picture is one of my wild Columbine plants. These are all through our woods. I've seen other colors in the garden centers for sale. This is the only color I have found on our property. This particular one was moved when we first bought our house - I wanted it in my 'circle garden near the main entryway.
I snapped these photos, and then - I risked life and limb to avoid some scarey spiders, and then I took some shots of the inside of the nests while mommas were away! Do you see what I see??
They aren't the clearest shots - the flash was needed, and I had the camera right up over the nests - so.... this is what we have! Egg-citing, isn't it?? I'm going to keep a lookout to see what kind of birds these are - they have used grass, mud, moss, and some old plastic netting that can be found around oranges and other produce, of all things. Not from OUR discards - I don't purchase anything in those types of bags - harmful to wildlife!
Have a great rest of the weekend!
