Anyway, we had the chair cushions piled up in the corner and as he went to throw them away he noticed a bird had built a nest between them and there were baby birds in there. For the last two weeks we've seen Mama bird feeding her babies and they opened their eyes and they tweet a lot. So last night and today its been rainy, cold and WINDY. I went home for lunch and noticed the wind had shifted the cushion the nest was on and it was precariously placed on the chair. I put the cushion back and tied a cat-carrier top to the chair to protect the nest from the rain and wind, which leaves plenty of space for Mama to get in there to feed her chicks.
I saw her fly in there before I came back to lunch with a worm or something, so she seems ok with my nest renovations. I just hope I didn't inadvertently mess something up and make Mama mad.
