Birds in the Bedroom

I'm  almost embarrassed to admit where I found this little bird's nest with its two unhatched eggs.
It was here on top of the drapes/curtain pole in my back bedroom!

I keep these French doors that lead onto a tiny Juliet balcony open pretty much all summer. I get the occasional bat, but they don't bother me. They do bother Lucie, tho, and I can always tell when one flies in. She refuses to go into the room and sits by my feet staring at me intently until I take care of the problem. Evidently birds don't  frighten her.

I did close these doors a couple of times early on this summer during some cool, rainy days and nights. It's true I saw a bird flying around upstairs once, but I didn't think much of it. It flew out and I shut the doors. When the same thing happened a few days later,  I became suspicious. That's when I saw the nest. I left it thinking that maybe Mama Bird would continue to sit and the eggs would hatch.

Alas...no. I must have shut her out of the room too long for the eggs to remain viable. She finally gave up and left for good. Today I removed her nest.

Birds in the bedroom no more. A sad, but true tale.
