There are so many “bad” things in the news these days.

We want to take a departure from the depressing news cycles.

This is a feel good, personal story.

My amazing and talented wife Margie makes and hangs outdoor wreaths for all seasons and major holidays.

We have double front doors. They both open and close. However, the one on the right (as you face our home) is almost always locked tight and rarely is ever used.

Animals are so smart. Margie and I have been witnessing a bird painstakingly build a nest on the top of one of the two door wreaths.

It cannot be a coincidence that the bird chose the door that we don’t use to fabricate the nest.

That’s just plain smart.

Here is a look at our two front doors and a closeup of the carefully fabricated bird’s nest (below).

Here is the closeup of the bird’s nest with 4 eggs. They are most likely House Sparrow bird eggs.

We take this stuff seriously and enjoy it very much. Our home is a National Wildlife Federation Certified Wildlife Habitat. Margie made this distinction happen.

Over the years, we have “hosted” the following wildlife:

  • Turtle
  • Birds
  • Bees
  • Ducks
  • Rabbits
  • Frogs
  • Snakes
  • Praying Mantas

And, more.

Margie is pretty sure that our birds are House Sparrows.

We get real invested in these things. We’re looking forward and fondly to the births.

It’s real neat that they chose our home, because they felt it was safe and secure.

if you stop by our home, “The Ponderosa,” please be gentle around the two front doors. Four new lives appreciate it, too.

I have thoroughly enjoyed writing and sharing this positive, personal story with you.

We’ll keep you posted.

PS: We can’t power wash for 28 days until the birds hatch.
