a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Birds for Wordle

Wish they had built
On a cliff instead of here
No chimney available
They chose a place
Close to  drink

Six in all
Four babies
Whistle with open mouths
The parents drilled the air
For insect fortunes

No porcelain throne
For their habits
They let it rip
Building a pit, a pile below
The split tail parents sing

We have had fly catchers for the last eight years, this year the other birds in the neighborhood would not let them nest…nature can be hard.

Bluetail Swifts?? Also known as mud dauber? These birds are adorable but they sure make a mess if they have nests on your porch. They also return year after year to the same location.

We are so delighted to see wild animals procreating that I wonder whether they think the same about us daring to be our neighbours?

How lovely...maybe it's a good place to nest after alln

I guess that the pile beneath indicates it's a great place to nest.
