Seems that I have quite the resourceful birds hanging out near my house!
Just before Easter we had a nasty wind storm and this little nest landed near our play-fort in the backyard. You can see that the nest is made largely of twine. Days before the windstorm, I removed the “stick frame” that I used last year for my pole green beans and tossed it into our stick pile. The twine was mostly dried up and I didn’t plan to use it again this year. I will be growing my beans in a new location this year. But I’m thrilled that the birds were able to use it. I have no idea if the bird eggs made it through the wind storm, and I’m just hoping they had hatched before the nest fell.
I just love that the birds in our neighborhood are recycling the dried up garden twine!
