i actually have these guys in my yard. i have never seen the before until now. i first noticed them dive bombing the pool. kept telling myself they'll be fine. they have built a nest under the eave of my kitchen window. they are pretty cool about me pulling into the drive way when they are sitting in the nest. i try not to bother them so they can have their privacy. the things we do for animals. LOL took about a week and a half to complete the nest. last yr i had mocking birds nesting in my yard and now these cute little guys. ive been in my home since '85 and only in the past 2 yrs have birds nested anywhere on the grounds. works for me.
