There must be something wonderful about sitting on top of our chimney. It's nearly always occupied, either by doves, woodpeckers or like today - this robin. It was sitting up there just telling all the other birds that this was his throne.
Occasionally a woodpecker will peck on it. The first time I hear that I thought the furnace was having some kind of terrible breakdown. Then it got quiet. Then it started again. Finally I decided that it wasn't the furnace, it was a woodpecker. I'm glad they like it, I think this property really belongs to them anyway - we're just caretakers. Diane
