We’re loaning out a bedroom for the summer – rather a very tiny bedroom, that is. We added a bird house in our front yard and within days a pair of blue birds is building a nest. They’ve been so diligent in their nesting that bits and pieces are coming out of the venting spaces and from the crack in the front door.
Each day I can look up from my desk and see them flying to and from the bird house, working hard on their new summer home. I think next year I’ll planting a climbing vine of some sort and allow it to climb the pole the bird house is mounted on, but I want to give them their space for now.
Bird watching is therapeutic and good for the soul.
