In 1996 we built our house on what was farm ground.
That meant no trees at all. We got busy planting lots of trees and caring for them.
It was nice to see them grow but what I really wanted was for bird nests.
It took a very long time for the trees to grow and in the last two or three years we have had several nests.
I have enjoyed watching the mama birds protecting their young, swooping at our heads when we got too close. It's been fun to see them grow and learn to fly.
