Hidden in plain sight and contest winner!

First, the winner of our contest! The winner is: Old Kitty! Congratulations! I will forward your email to the contact I have at Myecloth so she can email you your certificate!

I have a decorative wreath near the front door. I noticed a bird near there but didn't pay much attention.

I posted these photos on Facebook and learned that there are two kinds of eggs, a cowbird and a house finsh. The cowbird lays eggs in other birds' nests and doesn't care for them. I did some research and learned that it's illegal to move cowbird eggs since they are a native species.

More to come--

Awwwwww thank you! Oh wow!! Awwww me and Charlie are so happy - thank you thank you!!! We are blushing! :-) Thank you!

Take care
