I saw this black bird which is known here as Dhobi Bird - I do not why - cozily sitting on the nest that she and her husband have been struggling to build since the last few days. She is occupying the top of our light that is hanging at the entrance to our main door. She seemed comfortable when I was clicking and did not fly away. The photo is not quite what I expected.

She is a brave little thing if the light flicking on and off doesn't scare her. How nice to have a nest so near by.

It is rarely that we put that light on and I only hope we see the end of their turmoil and lovely babes will be born to them.

Glad that the bird's nest is just on the top of the light and may not be wet when there is rain but our birds nest here were on top of the palm trees, when there is heavy rain, I think the eggs or even the birds laying the eggs might be wet.

Somehow birds can withstand heavy rain and so relax.

@ida123, In our place seldom we can find birds entering our homes,right?Because many are not animal friendly.

@cacay1 It depends, if your environment has lots of trees, you can find birds flying inside your home.

I am glad she feels so comfortable there. We have baby robins right outside our window. Mom is feeding them now.

It is good the light doesn't scare the birds. How nice it will be when you can actually see the babies come out and fly around.

@Marcyaz I am seeing her everyday which means she will not abandon the nest.

Thats nice! Whenever I find nest by my windows I leave them alone and eventually they hatch and leave the nest on their own

I have to be patient because once they had laid eggs in our letter box - rather an improvised one and they did not reach the term, sadly.

yippee! 'tis a lovely spot, free from predators. most birds'll not leave their eggs/young if'n possible. they'll remain still'n hopes that the human doesn't see'm :)

I would have wanted to see a better background - the wall has marble chips and that did not show.
