Well, now we know who was building this nest. Taking away it's overhead cover did not deter its use. I guess the redecking project is going to move slowly for a bit.


...and momma was laying an egg. We may be on hiatus for about four weeks.

Well, it appears that the nest has been abandoned. No eggs; no remnants. Way too soon for successful reproduction. Ah well.

I wonder if local wildlife was involved. I'm unlikely to know.

...but that frees me to continue working on the deck project.

@lillia Yep. I expect a second to appear today. I may even place something over it to minimize the chances of one of the neighborhood feral cats getting at it from above. They do come up on the deck to get food.
