Bossed Around By Birds!
We've had some hard-working robins build a nest in our climbing rose bush. I think this is pretty neat, until I walk anywhere near the rose bush. The outside hose connection is right under the nest. Whichever bird parent is sitting on the egg(s) stays very still until they can't stand it any more an dive-bombs me. We've taken to locking the side door next to the rose bush to discourage bother the birds, but how long will this last? How long does it take for baby birds to hatch and get big enough to fly away on their own? I guess we'll find out!
