I don't think I could feed these either.

Several years ago, my man received as a gift these suspending shelf things for storage in the garage. They are WONDERFUL!

They secure into the beams inside your ceiling and there's a little thing-a-ma-giggy that you stick in and turn to raise or lower them.

Did you like my oh-so-technical description, there?

The car parks right underneath them and they are great for getting some of those bigger & bulkier items out of the way that may not fit on an ordinary shelf.

So, what my man and I learned is that we have some birds nesting in one of ours. It's really rather ingenious. Completely sheltered from the elements. Warm enough, yet cool enough. Low visibility for predators. Quite the perfect spot.

You can see the nest right up in between the two blue things and above the white thing. (Yeah, they're great for organization, but I have no idea what's up there.)

Oh and behind the trash bags from Costco and a spool of wire for who knows what purpose.

And I got brave enough the other day to look inside...

So, I guess I'm going to be an AUNTIE!!!

But, what do you suppose I do if this happens?

It would be disastrous as baby birds would have a harder time getting food from me than my own children did.

Best of luck with the baby birdies. We've thought about getting those storage things but I have visions of my boys swinging on them and everything crashing to the garage floor.

Wow! How neat and awful all at the same time. I hope the mommy bird comes back so you don't have to worry about feeding them!

Oh fun. Happy egg hatching.

At least you don't have to move them! We had some roost on a ladder we needed one time.

It wasn't pretty. We don't keep the ladder 'there' anymore! LOL

OMG! Wow, they made themselves at home, didn't they? :-)
