Messy Robins Make Tappan Home Their Own

  I stepped out onto my porch last week, and was greeted with grass strewn all about.  Not seeing anything, I swept it up, and threw it into the bushes.  The next day, there it was again, only this time there was the beginnings of a bird's nest over the front door frame.  As luck would have it, we had guests, one of whom is a birder.  He talked us through the nesting process, and suggested that the front porch light be turned off while the birds are in residence.  The nest is now completed, but unlike those I find in bushes, this one does not have a nice rounded shape. Instead, it sort of cascades down the door frame.  The left over grass is still on the floor, but since the porch plants do have to be watered, I'll have to bother the expecting couple and do a little sweeping as well.
