Mom and Dad bird would get very agitated at any attempt on my part to actually use our porch and sit on it. The squawks would increase the longer I sat there. I would take the hint and leave. She had built such a well-made nest using moss and horse hair among other things. I am really curious--how did she get the horse hair? I don't ever see it just laying on the ground. Did you swoop down and grab a handful? Guess I will never know.
Finally Junior left the nest this week. Fly high, little man, it is a hard world out there! And don't venture into the backyard where sneaky snake lives.
