Last summer, we moved our pergola and chopped back the Akebia vine that encased it.
Their attempts are certainly ambitious with an old hardy fuchsia stem. I watched them work together to wrench it out of the raised bed. But will it stay in place?
So far, the Dark-eyed Juncos have tried building a nest in three spots and windy rain/hail storms have blow it out. I caught My Pirate picking up the nest and putting it back in place. Part of their nest landed on my primula. I don't know if the final corner of the pergola will protect the nest from the elements.
Should I intervene and install a box on the final corner? Or should I let them move on to a safer spot? I welcome your suggestions.
