Knock, Knock . . .

who's there? A funny, little yellow bird.

For the past week or so, this little yellow bird has been knocking on our windows with his beak. We cannot figure out what he is doing. Some birds accidentally fly into our windows because of the reflections, sometimes. This little fellow, flies up and taps his beak on the window. He has done it on several different windows, so I don't think it has to do with reflections. I think there must be some invisible bugs we can't see, that maybe he is catching?

Walking to school one day we also saw him do the same thing to a truck that was parked on the street. He was flying around tapping on the windows. Very strange.

We also have a mommy Mourning Dove that made her nest in a tree outside our living room window. We check on her every day, as she has been laying and hatching her eggs. She picked a spot where we really don't have a good view from any angle because of the leaves, but a couple of mornings ago, we got a glimpse of the chicks. You had to look really hard and she was still covering up most of them. I hope we can see more as they grow. Look closely in the picture, she is in there.
