Even Birds Look for Good Homes

Everyone is looking for a great real estate deal. And can you blame them? With interest rates below 4% and lower, real estate is going to the birds! Literally! I came home one day to look up from my front door to see a beautiful nest some birds had built. Have you ever seen the way a bird builds a nest? It is magnificent! The care, the love and patience they take. Bringing in small wood sticks, pieces of lint they find, leaves, and who knows what else. It is really an awesome thing to see.

I have seen at least five to six families come and go and have their birdies, feed them, then teach them to fly. They go away, somewhere, then comes along another pair of birds looking for a place to live. My son had accidentally, or maybe intentionally, I’m not sure, power washed the front porch and down came part of the bird nest. To my amazement, the next family of birds to come along actually remodeled and it is once again fit for them to raise their little ones and live there until they too can learn to fly. They come and sit on the chandelier, look at the nest and think, “Hmmm, this is a good deal, we can remodel and it will be ready for our new family.”
It is just amazing to me how these little creatures can have so much energy to build, remodel a home, have “kids” , feed them, teach them to fly and then do it all over again. We should all take lessons. I for one, am proud to have them as “tenants” in my home. And I don’t even charge them rent! Until next time, Keep the Faith…..I know these birds sure will!
