Life in the Gutter

A year or so ago my husband put those plastic guards over the gutters. Every so often when we have a windy storm a few fly off, and then it's back up there to replace them. Well, about a week or two ago it happened again. There was all this stuff in the gutter over the sliding glass door that goes to the deck. It simply just couldn't have flown in there on its own, especially if anything that would get in there would be those little whirly things the huge maple tree next to the deck would send out, and it's not time for them to drop. (There used to be a lot of those in there before the gutter guards!) Anyway he cleared it out and set the guard back.
Then one day Brian and I saw some birds going in at the opposite end of the house and told Paul that there were birds going in by the downspout. I guess he thought we meant near the deck so he lifted of the guard only to find a nest with 4 eggs. I finally went up on the ladder that he had left on the deck and had a look for myself, only to find 5 eggs! Amazing, those determined parents had decide where they were going to put down their roots and nothing was going to deter them!
I'll keep checking back and keep you updated.
