Several bird species are building their nests in our garden. We’ve seen robins, phoebes and grackles hard at work in the last few days.  A pair of cat birds have just flown in – perhaps they will build a nest in our spruce tree again this year.


Robins build messy nests; phoebes’ nests seem to be a little neater.  Isn’t that just like human homes?

A few years ago, we had the joy of seeing a pair of robins successfully raise their young in a nest on our pergola:


In previous years, we’ve also seen eagles’ nests and Canada Goose nests on Newboro Lake.   We hope our bald eagles return this year – they are wonderful to see.
