No, it's on top of a post on our front porch.  At first I thought it was a mockingbird nest because mockingbirds were constantly on our front singing and chirping.  I don't know what that was all about because it's a wrens nest.

Stormi is bound and determined to get the birds.  The cats are under constant attack from the parents.  Johnny had to stand with the cats so they could eat this morning but this afternoon Stormi was on the fence not paying attention while both parents bomb her.  I've put out more pepper and Johnny has stuck cardboard around the fence hoping it will make it impossible for Stormi to jump into the shrub.  Only time will tell.

I had a 30 pounder if he was an ounce wild turkey fly right out in front of me as I was driving into town.  He barely cleared my windshield.  Talk about a bird that doesn't look as if it was ment to fly. 

We have a little sparrow sized black bird with a white fluffy chest visiting.  He likes the deck railing for some reason.

And the blue jay keeps checking out the cherry tree even though it will be another 3 years or so before there are cherries on it. 

And the cardinals have been flitting here and there.

I love the birds in my yard.

Gosh duh.  I'm glad that turkey didn't cause you to wreck or hit your car.  I've never seen a turkey fly but I haven't seen many alive turkeys in my life.

Speaking of cardinals, I usually have a yard full but since these mockingbirds have been hanging around my back door I haven't seen a one.

The babies have taken flight.  I saw one of them hiding in the spirea on the other side of the house this morning.  The cats aren't around and Andy doesn't seem to be bothering them.  If human parents took care of their babies like these bird parents have the world would be a better place.

I'll agree with that as well. 

Today I saw a different bird on the deck.  I wouldn't have seen them at all except they moved one of the chairs and it made that scraping sound.  Who knew they could move a chair, plastic I'll admit but still. 

They looked about the size of a woodpecker.  Had the woody woodpecker head and a brown body the color of a sparrows, but their breasts were chartreuse.  I'm wondering if they are here to feed on the locust. 

Anyway he sat on the chair and stared into the window for a bit.  It was interesting.

Cardinals are beautiful.  I think the areas that don't have them are really missing something.  It's beautiful when they sit in the fig trees when the leaves are gone.
