Shhh … Do Not Disturb!
My backyard and front lawn are developing into wonderful little wildlife habitats. Currently there’s a robin nesting on the supports of my deck. Every time I go outside onto my deck, she flies away, generally onto a rooftop of a town home across from me. She and her partner squawk. After a few minutes, if all is still, she’ll fly to the branches of my neighbor’s maple tree. From there she makes her final approach back to the nest. I’m learning to quietly open the deck door and tiptoe around so as not to disturb her.
