Perch Baby Perch

Today I went over to my mom's house to help her, Old Bob, Jenn and Nick build a fence. I didn't make it that far though because I was distracted by a huge pile of chopped-down crab apple tree branches. I had already been thinking about making a big perch for Baby, and this was the perfect place to start.

I picked out a good chunk of tree and trimmed down it's branches. It was about four and a half feet tall and the branches I left had good angles for perching on and landing on. Mom and I went to Home Depot and picked up a big flower pot and a bag of rocks. All I had to do was put the branch in the pot and anchor it with the rocks.

Baby watched me as I was putting it together, and as I dragged it into place. As soon as it was done she flew straight to it and just hung out for about an hour. Here are a couple pictures of her on it.

(I had to re-hang it, she untied the twist-tie shortly after the first picture)

Coming to find out what all these flashes were coming from.

Oh I am sorry to hear you lost her. I'd be so sad if Baby went missing.
