Motorcycle Birdies

The birds have been very creative in where they build their nest this year. I've had them in grooming buckets in the barn and now one has taken up residence in my motorcycle helmet. These items then become off limits to me for the duration but I enjoy sharing these moments with the wildlife more than what I'm missing.

Mom came in with a worm dangling from her beak while I was taking this video so I made a hasty departure as not to upset her further. I hope later I can get a picture of her. Also this video is not this dark on my computer and I'm still learning the process so does anyone know how to lighten them before or after going to youtube. I wish you could see the detail I see but this is the best I got so far. 


  1. What a delightful treasure to find in your motorcycle helmet. It's a little miracle unfolding right there. Beautiful.

  2. Ahhh, so sweet.
    We have house wrens that nest every year in our garage and finches that next in our boston ferns on the porch. They certainly don't mind the high foot traffic of the family.

  3. I really love those two photos and your background is a very soothing color.
