Spring is right around the corner....

and the birds? well, the birds in our yard are acting a little crazy!!!!


Last Thursday I found some green apples in our fridge that were going bad. Since we have deer, I decided to put the apples out by the bird feeder the deer are stealing from. Saturday when I went to let the dogs out (on the complete other side of the house) I saw something green in this little Sparrow nest. I was wondering why someone put a tennis ball in the nest? Then I got a closer look! Now....I'm wondering WHAT bird put this there? and WHY???? I mean obviously it filled the entire nest? Are the Squirrels playing a nasty trick on those cute little Sparrows????

that's hilarious. One time, a bird built a nest near our porch and I saw something shiny. They had taken some ribbon with a busted balloon on it and woven it in somehow. It was so funning seeing that dead balloon hanging down. Birds are so crazy.
