Every Spring, when I put up my bright red patio umbrella, a pair of Cardinals are waiting to make it their new home. The umbrella goes up, I go into the house and there they are building a nest. When I come back outside, they move to a safe distance chirping at me, hoping I will leave. Sadly it will never work because the umbrella is collapsed at night and the deck is a busy place. So perhaps next year…..
