I think she's a female Indigo Bunting but she darts around too fast to be sure. I'm trying not to scare her to death, which is tough since she can see me through the storm door when I do the laundry. Hubby peeked inside the nest when she was taking a break the other day and made an interesting discovery. Along with her own 3 eggs, some lazy bird has deposited two more. It'll be interesting to see who hatches.
The photo isn't great because it was the wrong time of day, but you'll get the picture. No pun intended. What it is that Little Mama Bird has done? Recycled! Her nest is filled with bits of plastic bag and paper.
