Cathcart Street Nests
"I'm hungry Ma!"
My next door neighbours have hungry birds nesting at the front of their house, as do my wife and I. The neighbours are hosting a robin's nest with at least three chicks, we are home to a wee yellow birdhouse with an undetermined number of young inside.
"Open wide, Kiddies!"
"The coast is clear"
"Bombs away, Kiddies"
Our birdhouse has a one-inch entry hole - a relatively tight squeeze - and has not had inhabitants since I put in in place 5 - 6 years ago. So, we have been pleasantly surprised, and when the birds vacate their nest I will enlarge the hole to be better prepared for next year's guests.
