Be sure to go check out the latest additions to the FULL MOON FOR APRIL challenge.
We have Full Pink Moon, Full Fish Moon, art dolls and fiber projects. All excellent to see.
Apparently, nest building is not programmed in genetically. Well, at least not the basics. I have had Robins nest here that make a neat, well packed mud and grass nest with no litter on the porch and from start to finish it's done in a day.
This Robin, bless her heart tried for a week. A WEEK I tell you, to drape long grasses over the top of the light fixture to make her nest.
As you can see most of it, heck all of it ended up in my wicker planter, not to mention what blew around on the porch.
The male Robin sat in a nearby bush and chirped at her all during the nest building period. Offering lots of encouragement I guess or criticism. Who knows how their relationship goes.
So you can see she has equal draping on both sides of the light fixture. We've removed the light so when we forget and turn it on at night we don't send her squawking up into the porch roof.
She sat in it for a day and night and hasn't been back again. I double checked and no eggs.
Maybe she went for a fly about before laying her eggs?
