New Neighbors

Every year I buy hanging baskets for our front porch. I love having flowers there. Here in Virginia it gets really hot, which means that I have to water these every other day. Lately, when I have been watering I have noticed a small bird fly out of the basket when I water. After about two weeks of this (yes, it took me that long), I decided there must be something going on in that basket. Sure enough, I found this cute little nest with 4 cute little eggs.
The nest belongs to a House_Finch. This might pose a problem for me when watering the flowers. Really, I don't know why the bird would make a nest in a place that gets drenched with water every other day!!!
