the Mud Hut

Look who's been around my place lately...
And what do you suppose they've been up to?

(ahem...let's just say it has something to do with the "birds and the bees," although technically no bees have been involved.)
Oh...and they've also been building a nice little residence right above my front door.

We've been referring to it as the "mud hut" since they started construction last week.
They've been very industrious and have finished the exterior work since I snapped this action shot.

Now it appears that the lady of the hut has devoted herself to some interior design while Mr. Hut looks on and keeps his mouth shut (smart man).

And judging by the (ahem) "recreational" activities we've caught them engaging in on top of the gutter, I'm guessing that the eggs are on their way shortly.

I'll keep you all updated....


  1. We have a Mr. and Mrs. Mud Hut too that built a nest 3 years ago. They have returned every year and we had eggs hatch last year and the year before, and I can't wait for this year's eggs!!

  2. That's crazy! I've been watching them this morning, and think she's almost ready to lay her eggs...
