In the spring, pretty soon after we moved into the house, I bought a beautiful fuschia hanging basket that has flourished and done pretty well for itself...
But the heat wave that we had 2 weeks ago killed it dead. So after failing to be able to revive it, I went to take it down to trim the long dead branches and something flew out of it but I didn't really think much of it, until I got it on the ground and saw a nest with some eggs in it! A bird totally moved into my hanging basket!
This picture was taken a couple days later and you can't see the eggs because it's up pretty high and the bird was mad I was getting close to the nest, so I tried to stay back a little bit.
This is what she looks like:
She's pretty little. Maybe only 2.5 - 3 inches tall. Does anyone know what kind of bird she is? Even better, does anyone have any good name suggestions? Please share in the comments!
