Served as a shocking reminder ~ all birds aren't bold like this one was ~ her nest on the porch
of the "shack out back" ~ is just perched a top a shelf ~ no cover other than the awning above. Checked it out close ~ and its real for sure. You know the nest is a process. I've watched many a time as both Mother & Daddy bird work on them ~ Daddy does most of the work but I've read that he has to take Mama around and she actually chooses the spot from the ones he's previewed. Fascinating.
