Guard bird

A small black, white, and brown bird sitting on a ledge, with part of a nest in the background.

There’s about four or five birds’ nests that sit above my porch. This means, as I’m sure you can imagine, there are a whole lot of birds around.

There’s one particular bird that I see a lot, though. It (I’m honestly not sure if it’s a she or a he) sits on the edge of the one rafter, near two of the nests, almost every time I go outside—and often when I just look out the window. I’m fairly certain its guarding the nests.

Luckily, despite its guard-bird duties, its never swooped at me or attacked me as I’ve walked by. I’m hoping that doesn’t change now that another nest has been added this year.
