So what better time than for 2 little birds to look for a place for their new nest?
I heard a bird singing on the front porch and took a peek out the window. There was a purple finch and his mate. She flew to the grapevine wreath hanging on the porch and sat there. She seemed to be trying it out as a location for her nest. He flew up higher and then started singing again.
I did not see them later in the day, so I don't know if they found a better location or not.
I guess this is the same pair that built a nest on the porch late last Summer. They will be a topic of a future post. Here is a preview of the little baby birds from last year...
