This year, another pair of birds (CLBBs™) took over the nest and they are sticking with it so far. The female sits in the nest except when folks walk by.
Our cat Biscuit has discovered the nest, and now she spends all her spare time sitting on the dining room table looking at it.
Of course I know what she really wants is to catch the bird, torture it, and eat it. But it looks like she is being its guardian angel.
Between that photo and this one, the OH walked through the dining room, and the bird flew away. Biscuit misses her.
