Sneaky but risky.....

This blackbird snuck in under our radar and built her nest in an ivy-covered fence within a few feet of our windows. It'll be convenient for watching her progress but tense too - a grey squirrel uses the top of the fence as a highway every day and there are magpies nesting just two gardens away...

  1. My blackbirds are also nesting in ivy that grows on my garden fence. So cute.

  2. Just shows the perils birds face every day.
    Let's hope they're successful.

  3. I'd love to have your situation of the blackbird nesting so close to the house. Also great photo, the light in the blackbird's eye looks perfect.

  5. We'll be keeping a close watch on them Keith - so far the squirrel doesn't seem to have found the nest...
