Bird Friend

We have a spiral evergreen at the end of our garage that we pass by at least 10 times a day. A bird of some sort has built a nest in it, however, and it now scares you senseless when you walk by it. She will take off out of the nest and usually hits me in the shoulder as she does so. I don't know why I do it, but I scream almost everytime! You would think I would learn to make a wide path around it, but I'm usually on a mission and not thinking about the crazy bird mother. Her eggs are beautiful, as you can see.

I'm kind of worried, though, because I have not met up with her in the past few days. She may be dead. Kade thinks we are going to raise the birds and doesn't understand that they won't hatch without her. If anyone has a surrogate bird mother, let us know!


  1. ahh we had same issue--a dove had a nest in my hanging flowers--and laid eggs--we came home one afternoon to feathers all over the front yard--Chloe wanted to bring in the eggs and put a heating blanket on them.

  2. What a great photo! I love your spiral topiary. Is it hard to keep alive? I have always wanted one, but I am afraid it will die and I will be sick that I wasted all of that money. It looks great!
