I am sure that you have heard or seen some strange places where birds have made their nests.  Well, a friend of my mother’s discovered this bird’s nest in an unusual place:

On her front door!

A mourning dove had built her nest inside of their artificial wreath hanging on the front door.

Now, you might think that this would be a strange place to build a nest with people coming and going through the front door.  But, for the residents who live here – this is their second home and they had been away for awhile.

I am sure that mama dove thought that this was the perfect place in which to lay her eggs and raise her babies.

Thankfully, the homeowners have another door to use to get into the house so that mama dove can be left undisturbed.

What strange and unusual places have you seen bird’s nests built?
