My Nest’s Better than Yours…

Critical Husband: “Why is the grill lid being left open all the time?”

Genius Wife: “'Cause there’s some birds trying to build a nest in there.”

Bossy Husband: “Well, it needs to be left down.”

Sarcastic Wife: “Yes, dear. Whatever you say.”

NEXT day….

Enlightened Husband (who looks shifty in this picture): “Uhhhh, I think we might have a bird’s nest in here.”

Sarcastic (and now victorious) Wife: “Oh MY. Really?”

Sorry...guess I should have added that it was a black bird that made the nest. Nothing out of the ordinary, but I did see more than one bird go in there. Maybe it's a duplex?

birds did the same thing in our grill last year! We finally found a cover at Lowe's and it goes over the top and ties on the sides so the poor birdies are having to build elsewhere!

Jennifer Juniper said...

What built that nest? Turkey buzzards??? (are turkey buzzards a real thing or only in cartoons?)

Julia said...

You're going to have to whip up some white icing and pipe it into big bird poop to help make this realistic! What a -huge- nest! Maybe it's some ducks? Maybe "shifty-looking" husband realized he'd get a new grill out of the deal... :) Too funny- started my morning out with a laugh- thanks!

Kristen said...

That is one.big.nest. What kind of birds are you growing up there?

The Momma said...

Oh so it's ostrich season now huh? :) Looks like we'll be keeping our grill shut, all the time. :)

Pam said...

OMG! I can't believe how big that stinkin' nest is. Please let us know if hubby is going to let the birds keep it or tear it down!

Dee-Zigns Handcrafted Jewelry said...

I would be very scared to see the size of the bird that built that nest, especially so close to your house! Broom it!

Nikki said...

Hilarious!

Jessica said...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! That could have been a conversation between me and my hubby!

Amanda@Imperfectly Beautiful said...

That's a big nest. How will you grill hamburgers if they live there all summer?

Buzzings of a Queen Bee! said...

I say better a bird's nest than a rat's nest. DH went to open our FIRST grill one day and a big fat rat was sitting in the middle of a nest - yuck! Our house backed up to a creek and we got all kinds of crazy critters there. We have since moved and got a new grill. I could never eat anything cooked on that grill after that - double yuck!

Wholesale Printing said...

LOL. I didn't know that birds can make nests on grills. I thought they prefer trees, haha~
What kind of birds live there?
