Those are nice. The first one with the nest in the ashtray is the best. The hummingbird on the wind chime is good, too. :)

I found a wren nest in a cardboard box once. It had been put up under an awning for eventual recycling but had been forgotten about for a while, just long enough for the wren to move in. Everytime I went by the nestlings heard the noise and thought it was feeding time so they stuck their heads ups and did the "Feed Me!" thing. :D

Looks like some of your images did not post.

Just a falcon in a normal neighborhood taking care of the offspring

That falcon nest would be great to have outside your window. :)

Oh, I know! I would have loved it - would have grumbled about the mess afterwards :lol: - but, while it was happening, nothing could be cooler :) .

It took me a while to figure out that there's pebbles in the window box. They probably absorbed quite a bit of heat during the day, and kept the babies cozy at night. That one photo, where she's looking right at the camera, she looks perfectly content and happy with the spot she picked :) .

I can't imagine raising nestlings on a carousel. Just the motion by itself, not to mention the booming of the kaliopy, sounds like it would affect the babies and their growth! They were very tiny at this point - I hope it all went well.
