Awe, White Beard, that is so sweet!
AWE!!!! That's all I can say!
p.s. I have a bird story from the past couple of weeks, too, but unfortunately it ended more like Straydog's did. Had a mother robin build a nest on my deck - wedged in between a pipe and the corner of the house, and have been watching as she laid one egg for each of 3 days. I even took pictures each day with my cell phone - standing on my tip toes, which she wasn't sitting on the nest, and each day I have one more egg! Beautiful robin's egg blue! And she's been sitting on the nest until Friday night when the storms and cold started. Yesterday I took some pictures of the inside of the nest, because I feared the nest had been abandoned (it's been down around freezing here for 3 nights in a row!) and I couldn't see the eggs. They might be buried in the straw, but it's been 3 days since the mother's been around at all. I was hoping to follow the babies, but I'm sure it's been way too cold for the eggs to have survived.
So I'm glad to hear your story, WB. And Skeye, my guess is it would be too cold where you are some of these nights, too, so probably best you made them postpone their nest building!
