It has a secret inside..... a nest of wrens are calling it home!
We've been seeing the adults zooming in and out over our heads, and under JoJo's stall door when we close up the barn for the night.... but didn't know where they were going.
Until one landed on the lip of the bucket, and then disappeared inside. After it left, we got a ladder and peeked (cuz that's what nosey humans do...), sure enough 4 little baby beaks in there!
I pretend I don't see them now when the pause on the edge; limp bugs dangling from their beaks, and the arrangement seems to be working...
|You can just see one of them...if you squint.|
This is the crab apple tree that now frames my little supply shed (formerly the "house" part of our trailer for Cricket)... The air is thick and sweet with the scent of these blossoms, can you smell them?
These are taken from our "front lawn".... and off on the left there (the buildings) is the center of town...
He's keeping an eye on things....mostly me at the moment.
