When I returned home from visiting my mom, my husband informed me that a robin was trying to build a nest over our deck door. He had taken it down three times, but she was back again this morning. It is amazing to watch a bird construct her nest. Do you realize that every robin builds a nest using the same design? Birders can distinguish between nests and identify the species of bird who built it. I once placed nesting materials in front of a group of students and asked them if they could construct a nest without using their hands. I hope she finds a better place to build her home!
