The Birds and the Bees in 2010

The Birds

Could you see their little heads and beaks poking out of the nest?  Every year birds try building a nest in this spot.  Scott usually "discourages" them before they lay eggs but we must have been snoozing this year and some cowbirds snuck it up there.

The Bees

I don't know what kind of bee this is but it was HUGE!  That board it is sitting on is a real 1"x 6" board and that bee took up ever centimeter of it.  We've had wood bees burrow into some of this overhang wood before but I never saw any this big.  Maybe this is the queen?
