Out My Bathroom Window

Just outside our hallway bathroom window, our {sluggish} internet satellite dish sits mounted upon the wall.  And cradled in the mounting bars of the satellite dish sits this little nest.
Just underneath the satellite dish and nest is where I feed our two ferrel cats, Dora and Diego, that happen to live in our garage.

Why these adorable little birds, I believe to be some sort of Finch, build their home here year after year, is beyond me.

But for the time being,

I'm happy they do.  Because from out my bathroom window, the kids and I have a birds eye view of this sweet little pair of tweeters.  And soon, we'll have a perfect view of the babies, soon to be hatched.

Now I know why the very clever, Dora and Diego have chosen our garage to call home.

We have had some birds "try" to make nests around our house... some how they didn't turn out and we have had broken eggs and baby birdies all over the place.. looks like our birds need a lesson from the cali birdies!!

I voted!! :)

Lovely little nest. If they have built there before they are probably pretty good at giving their babies dire warnings to keep away from those two feral cats.

Love your cats names!

I love the names too, and I miss having birds nesting near my house where I can watch them--So I'll have to live vicariously through yours!!
