There is a mother bird with a nest on one corner of our porch, right next to the watering hose. She flees every time I step out to water my plants (with a bucket now.), so I try to limit these visits, but hopefully my plants won’t die! Should I be flattered she picked my porch or is this a sign that I should visit it more often? And how long ’til her eggs hatch and those birds learn to fly?
