I love birds.
I especially love spring, when I find different types of birds busily building their nests (many which return year after year to the same spot).
Each year I have a pair of nuthatches that build their nest in a very protected corner of my roofline.
But this year I was blessed with something I’ve never seen in my garden – a pair of Dark Eyed juncos.
As I was gardening near my office one day, I knew there must be a nest nearby as they kept flying close to me, softly chirping their warnings to ‘SCRAM!’ I searched and searched but couldn’t find a nest anywhere. And I’m usually pretty good at finding nests.
A Ha! As I peeked inside the pot, I finally found their nest.
I can’t tell you what joy it brings me to hear these babies chirp for food while I’m working in my office.
