Before leaving for vacation we had been evicting potential tenants almost on a daily basis. Upon returning home from vacation, I checked for tenants in our picnic pavilion. I looked on the eaves and on the rafters, where potential tenants had been attempting to build nests. I didn’t see one bird’s nest. I was pleasantly surprised. As I was turning to leave the pavilion, I caught sight of a nest on top of a ladder that was propped up against the pavilion wall.
Oh boy! Mama Robin really scolded Bob and me for being near the nest!
This afternoon I walked out to the picnic pavilion to check on our tenants.
Mama Robin was sitting on the nest.
I guess we will not be using that ladder for the foreseeable future!
