Ok. You may be saying to yourself, "Why in the world is that crazy girl taking a picture of some old dilapidated, paint peeling, rusty grill?" (We still use this grill. Or at least did. I mean, come on, it is used to start and maintain fire so it doesn't have to be pretty.) Then yesterday, when I lifted the cover, I found this. Something thought it was just perfect. Perfect enough to start a family in.
I looked inside and found this little treasure. Got my camera took these pictures and replaced the lid. Called my friend, Amy B.-animal lover extraordinaire, to find out what to do with it. *Would've loved to use the grill but decided to use the other one. *Amy called the wildlife preserve in IL where she lives. They told her if I must move it, put it in a cardboard box with one end open. The momma bird may come back or not. They usually don't lay just one egg.
Well, today, I wanted to see if there was evidence that the momma had come back. Lo and behold, there are two eggs in the nest now. I decided to leave it alone. She must of laid it sometime during the night or early morning. Maybe there will be a bunch of little chirpies zooming around soon.That's a good reason to smile. Babies are always great. That is unless it is baby snakes! Those I can live without.
