The Robins have finally decided to make a nest. One day there was no activity and a few days later..viola a nest!
For those of you that have followed my blog a long time, the nest is not on the ladder this year! The Robins took the hint and built on the platform that Far Guy made for them. He was lamenting it one day…saying maybe it should have had sides or maybe it could have been bigger. Well the ladder doesn’t have sides and the ladder isn’t very big either.
A piece of wood and an old shelf bracket seems to have worked just fine.
Far Guys garage has a huge overhang…so that makes it a nice dry warm spot to have a nest. In this photo you can see the ladder that was once a nesting spot and the spot where the shovels and rakes are hung along this wall which was sometimes the chosen spot. That is an old greenhouse in the background which is now a woodshop/workshop warm place to work in spring and fall or chilly summer days.
It rained almost all day yesterday. Chance and I were out in the rain several times.
Chance was my co-pilot for grocery shopping and errands in town…he put his window down and hung his head out in the rain. We bought a new birdbath that we hastily put together in the rain, it ain’t perfect..we will fix it proper when it stops raining. The rain is cold..but at least it isn’t snow!
