Here to stay. . . I think

The bird is back to stay I think. Last night, Rob and I were working on sorting the junk we removed from the cars yesterday. They were full of junk and trash, and we were afraid to bring everything into the house. Both cars were NASTY! Therefore, we were sitting in the garage sorting junk. I went back to look at the nest, and there were four eggs! FOUR! Well, yesterday early, I had walked right up to the nest and looked in to see the eggs, but I startled the bird (who was so well camoflauged that she flew right out, but didn't fly at me.) So I wondered if that was it. Last night, the bird flew around the garage a few times as if deciding whether or not to stay on her eggs. She finally flew out, and I peeked in at the nest. I'm still suprised by FOUR eggs!!! :)


If you look in the middle, you can see the bird's eyes. She's in there hanging out, sitting on her eggs. Isn't she beautiful?

YAY! Indeed! I was really worried that she wouldn't come back. Happy day! :)

I'm sure she's there to stay now because she was in her nest, and I went to get some water bottles out of the shelf right under the nest, and she just peeked out a little bit. I think she knows now that we won't hurt her.

The bird seems to give us a wide berth, but she has never attacked us, even when we've gotten between the bird and the nest. This could be a very interesting episode very soon.
