We began cleaning out the garage last week and left some piles in the backyard over the weekend.
She must have moved in then (you can see her nest location on top of the water meter). In order to finish the job, we will need to disturb her privacy.
"Squatters who take over land or dwellings have the law to contend with since the establishment of property rights in the U.S."
"Wisconsin laws grant rights to squatters that can transform trespassing into legal ownership under the right circumstances."
"A squatter's right is a legal allowance to use the property of another in the absence of an attempt by the owner to force eviction."
I guess she's here to stay since we won't be evicting her. But, once in a while I do need to get near that area to turn on the faucet or move stuff. If she bolts from the nest when I walk by- then it is fair game.
From A Reader
[Our priest] says that we should approach each Communion the same way as a little bird. The little bird opens his mouth - so hungry and trusting in someone to feed him. We too, hunger- for the Lord, and open our mouth with great expectations!
The little Wren in photo #7 was setting up a nest. BY July 5th, tiny nestlings were in the birdhouse. Within 14 days they were flying.
“Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground without your Father's will. But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.” (Mt 10-29-31)
Dear Robin Family:
In case you aren't aware
maid service isn't here
we have to do repairs,
and keep it clean in there.
Just because it's marked,
doesn't mean it stays forever,
clean away unwanted goods,
simple hygiene becomes a pleasure.
We don't think we're nagging,
- just trying to be fair,
we all need to pull our weight ,
so please stop, think and then CARE!
