It’s for the birds

Food For Thought

About six weeks ago, I watched a robin building a nest on the top of an outdoor light fixture on my deck. Since we first extended the deck to connect an added back porch to the existing deck, there has been a robin’s nest there every summer. Before, we usually put our Christmas tree out on the deck after New Year’s Day as shelter for the birds that came to the bird feeders. Many springs found us forced to delay disposing of the dried-out tree because a robin nest was neatly built in its branches.
