My husband found this nest in a hanging pot INSIDE our shed this morning. The mama is able to get inside under the overhang of the shed. He moved it outside in the same spot, because he was afraid the babies might not figure out how to get out when they are flight ready. I so hope the mama finds the nest and continues to raise them.
I was thinking they might be downy woodpecker eggs due to the black and white striped feathers in the nest, but a google image search shows they are tufted titmouse eggs. That makes sense, as I did see a titmouse take some of the cat fur that I put out on the deck for them the other day. But why would there also be the black and white feathers?
I soooo hope these babies make it!
