A "pregnant" house guest

We have a house guest! This little bird is making her nest by our side garage door.
I have been spying on her ever since I discovered her building her nest on Saturday.
She's a trooper. Even though there has been grody rain and blah weather she leaves every few seconds to go get a new stick and then she feathers her nest after fixing the twigs with her beak. It's precious.

Her maternal instincts inspire me.

I thought she had a man hanging around the nest too but he's been gone since Saturday. I had named them Bob and Jillian but without Bob, what good is Jillian?
So I am thinking of a new name for her.
I'll let you know what I come up with.

I'm excited to see how many babies she has and watch them grow. In a month they will probably be grown and gone all ready.

 I will keep posting to let you know how her progress is coming during her "pregnancy".
