Just last week I bothered to take a look at our porch light fixture and noticed that someone had established a rather cozy home on the top of it. I honestly couldn't tell you if it was leftover from last year or not...and about the time I was deciding it appeared vacant, one day I detected the tiniest bit of tail sticking up in the air.
Well, this poor girl could have probably done a lot better in terms of privacy, but she's smart enough to be out of the weather and hopefully, somewhere where no invader birds will steal her babies before they're big enough to be on their own. For now, she's sitting on her eggs. I am now tippy-toeing in and out, trying not to disturb her. For a few hours earlier today, she was facing out and I could see a small bit of her little head. I saw some yellow...and she's quite small...so I'm guessing she's some sort of finch.
Just now when I went outside to turn off the dyepots, I noticed she had turned around. It was too cute to pass up, I had to share it with you.
