"If At First"

On my front porch the Robins
came again this year to try a
nest in the bull head bell ---it
seems the Mrs. doesn't like
me to come out the door but
otherwise she's content to
sit on her three blue eggs.

You must have the most interesting home - I wish I could stop by in person. As it is I love seeing your journal works, they are always so uplifting.

Anytime you're in the neighborhood, stop by and help yourself to whatever is around for refreshments.

Wonderful drawing! :) My dad has a royal palm tree right in our small yard, and there's a nest left there on the top, and birds keep coming back and reusing it over and over again...what a great way to recycle the nest. It's almost like maternity ward for the birds in the birds' community ^^
I love the colors you use here again Winna, your stuff is simply amazing! :)

My husband, son, and I would be delighted to come home and find a birdy-bird sitting on her eggies. Poor thing, not to realize that the spot is going to see a lot of action.

They tried it in the same place last year and moved down to the end of the porch, only to return this year and build it there again and stay this time....

That's hilarious, Winna! Your journal pages are always so clever and colourful. Thanks for sharing them with us.

What a wonderful thing to have just outside your door - (both the bull and the birds nest!) Winna your stuff is always so compelling and interesting

Below is part of an article by George Harrison in Backyard Birders:

SOMETIMES it’s downright irritating to watch bully birds, such as blue jays, swoop down onto bird feeders, sending panicked goldfinches, juncos and chickadees flying. Or to watch as European starlings crowd a feeder so that smaller, less aggressive birds don’t have a chance to eat. Such bratty behavior has caused some people to throw in the towel and stop filling feeders altogether. ************************

Well, my bully birds seem quite well mannered, thank you very much....

Poor little bull head... Great journal post. Atleast it's not a Brown Thrasher. I heard they can get pretty nasty if anyone goes around their nest.
