We have a 'duplex' birdhouse hanging in front of our living room picture window that my Father-In-Law built years ago. The holes are too small for bluebirds to get into, So this mama bluebird compromised. I've watched the construction since day one. She layed 4 eggs and has been sittin on em. I took these pics from inside. It's great to have a birds eye view of the developments. I will post more pics as things develop.

You can see Mama's head to the left of the left chain.

Here's a close-up.

SW haven't seen any felines lately.

WW It's attached to the underside of the eave. The window hardly ever gets wet even with a blowing rain.
