our new guard dog?

by teresa

We have a bird on our back porch.
It's the same one (at least it looks the same) that made a nest in our garage last year and in our hanging plant the year before.
She usually sneaks in and nests on a high self when the kids lift the door to play.
I suppose she got tired of waiting and plopped in the planter on the steps.
The problem with that is, everyone who enters through the back door, storms past her within inches. This does not make the fowl momma happy.
I love to sit inside and listen to the kids discover this for the first time.
Screams, flailing around and running from the porch in a bolt.

We should have thought of this years ago.
