One of the things I love most about spring is all feathered visitors, seeking nesting sites, that come to inspect my yard. I have many wonderful birdhouses scattered around my property, and every year I wonder which houses will be selected. Both the school house and the faucet house in the picture above have been very popular in past years. This year, however, not so much. A chickadee duo did begin to nest in the schoolhouse but changed their minds, leaving abandoned twigs sticking out of the round opening. Darn. Was it something I said?
