Bird Bandit

Some birdie has been very, very busy stealing moss-liner from the window boxes.
I trust it serves her nest well.

Oh my gosh!
I wonder what birdie did that?
But can you imagine how soft its little nest will be for the new babys? She probably wishes she could thank you.

You are so wonderful to provide that nesting material. Maybe next year you just put out the moss. lol

The birds here love it when I brush the dog and cat.

It's time for babies! And your liner will be put to good use, no doubt. :-)

LOL, well I guess you can't be too upset with her as she is building a nest for her babies. :)

Hi! Jo,

Ahhhh! what a sweet post. The birdies will soooo enjoy! Your flowers are beautiful!

I don't suppose the dear bird knew it was doing wrong. She probably thought you'd put the moss there just for her. Isn't it lovely when we work with nature instead of against it!

I have a little male sunbird that comes in and steals the moss from my hanging baskets, mrs sunbird stands guard and yells at him if he gets the wrong bit. They move so fast its hard to take a photo. I know they are nesting nearby but haven't seen it yet.
My late hubby and I grew up in Blackpool so saying a wet whit weekend in Blackpool was a common saying here in our house, of course our boys had no idea what a wet whit weekend was like so had to take our word for it.
There is a spot here on the Tableands that is always blowy, standing there is just like standing at the sea rails on the prom and getting battered by the wind blowing over the Irish Sea.

Very pretty windowbox!
Our neighbors raise alpacas, and all the birds in our area have the softest nests!

Cheeky little devils.

It probably does make great nesting material. I hope you get to see the nest that you helped build.
