RE: ok- this is just unbelievable

Our garden is home to a returning set of mourning doves as well...on the
ground in the middle of my daffodils, right under the cherry
tree...there is a pair that returns to nest in the same spot there every
year. Is this unusual for birds to nest on the ground?

Yes, it is a robin.... and I am concerned that she is going to knock
it<br>off/hanger going to give way when the babies hatch. But I also
know I can't<br>touch it or move it... so nature is going to have to
handle it. (I am also<br>concerned on how well it was made- boy scout
fund raiser.)<br><br>Bonnie- this nest was made by the bird... it was a
plain wreath with a bow.<br>It always amazes me how they do that. Still
haven't found the morning doves<br>nest... got to be somewhere
:)<br><br>Ceres, yes there are also more bird nests in the area between
my downspout<br>and gutter (at least they know not to get in the way of
the water path), as<br>well as my back light fixture. Seems they are
each taking a side of the<br>house.<br><br>I usually try to take the
nests out of wherever after the babies have flown<br>away and give them
to the nature center. They use them for examples for the<br>youth groups
that tour the place.<br><br>Donna<br><br><br>> <br>> LOL!!! I love it! I
gave my neighbor a wreath a couple years ago with a<br>> "fake" bird's
nest in it for spring when they first moved in. Next thing<br>> you
know, I got a call that they couldn't use their front door for a<br>>
couple<br>> of months because a mother bird had nested in it. We never
did find out<br>> what happened to the fake eggs that had been in it.
Perhaps it's a bird<br>> calling card?<br>> <br>> (BTW, Bill just took
our Christmas wreath down last week.)<br>> <br>> Blessings,<br>> Bonnie
