We opened the front door Tuesday to find a surprise. A momma bird thought the basket there was the perfect place for a nest. She was surprised too when we opened the door. I was afraid she might abandon the nest but she came back. Now we are using the back door to get in and out. It's a pain but getting to see baby birds up close when the eggs hatch will be the reward.
Moving inside, here's the nest that has been decorating my mantle. I had planned to make this with Will after seeing the directions featured on The Crafty Crow. (I pretty much want to make everything I see on The Crafty Crow!) A big thanks to Ms. Agya at school for taking this craft off my to-do list!
