Looks like I'm not the only one with the nesting instinct. I saw a pair of house finches building a nest on top of one of our patio speakers this morning. This one didn't seem to mind my presence too much, but the other one wouldn't come back until I went inside.
I guess we won't be able to use our speakers until the eggs hatch because the vibrations might harm them, but I didn't want to discourage them from nesting there. I think Savy will love having baby birds living with us, and hopefully she'll get to see them learn to fly. At our old house in Cordova, a family of wrens lived under our patio. We just happened to be there to see the babies learn to fly, but Savy was way too young to remember it.
