They're back!


















If you missed yesterday's post, I have some determined starlings(those are starlings, right?) trying to build a nest in my grill. I think I'm going to have to stuff something in the holes to keep them out. They're driving my cats crazy! So much fun to watch. . .should I give up the grill??? No, I can't. When we start using the deck they'll want to find some new real estate. What's a bird lover to do!

  1. We had birds try to do that too. We tried leaving the cover open, helped a bit, and then tied a rain tarp around it (had to pull it under/around legs to tie below since they wanted to go in from below). They got the hint and moved to a tree. :)

  2. You got some great shots of that darling starling. :) Hopefully they'll move to a nearby tree where you can continue watching them.

  3. I wonder if you bought a birdhouse for them and attached it to the deck right by the grill???
