Hard at work carrying nesting material to their den before that white stuff hits us.

They have become  less skittish and even visited us on the deck for an introduction as the new neighbors.

My husband has built them a nest, just in case they need one if their nest get blown down during a winter storm (don’t want them to move in with us).

The nest can open up at the front in case we need to clean it out.

It has tie down anchors to hang up by.

The nest in one of our trees, tied with nylon straps as to not damage the tree.

We can’t see the nest from our deck at the moment, but once the leaves fall down, we should be able to see it.

    • Ek is bly jy hou daarvan, ons kry nie veel gedoen nie, die verkyker en kameras is heeltyd op die eetkamer tafel en ons oë is heeltyd buite, maar ons geniet dit. Dit lyk my daar is nou ‘n nuwe speler in die storie 😉
