Critical Husband: “Why is the grill lid being left open all the time?”
Genius Wife: “’Cause there’s some birds trying to build a nest in there.”
Bossy Husband: “Well, it needs to be left down.”
Sarcastic Wife: “Yes, dear. Whatever you say.”
Enlightened Husband (who looks shifty in this picture): “Uhhhh, I think we might have a bird’s nest in here.”
Sarcastic (and now victorious) Wife: “Oh MY. Really?”
Sorry…guess I should have added that it was a black bird that made the nest. Nothing out of the ordinary, but I did see more than one bird go in there. Maybe it’s a duplex?
The Chatty Housewife says
What in the world? How big are these birds?
Oh my goodness! I do believe, you do!
Is that for an ostrich egg?! Holy cow! Interesting!
birds did the same thing in our grill last year! We finally found a cover at Lowe’s and it goes over the top and ties on the sides so the poor birdies are having to build elsewhere!
FOR THE SAKE OF TIME says
I want to se THAT bird! Husbands just sometimes don’t listen : O )
Sigh. Why don’t they just listen?
Haha so funny!
Men are so observant!
Are there eagles trying to nest in your grill?? That’s the biggest nest I’ve ever seen!!
Julie Isa says
Laughing out Loud, Seriously that was funny! I can totally relate!!!
Chris, you did NOT make that nest, did you 😉 ha ha husbands, can’t tell ’em anything~
SharDon Exclusives says
I had to laugh out loud on this one!!! So funny…don’t ya’ love it when we are “sometimes” right…tks for the laugh but I too want to see the size of that bird…sharon
Haha, that is too funny!
That bird must be ginormous! Could your DH grill it? LOL
My name is PJ. says
Okay now, seriously – What on earth build that? It’s HUUUUGE! You need to come across with some details, missy! We’re all out here scratching our heads!
Suzann @ Lavender and Roses says
Well, now, how are you going to grill? LOL
Silly husband… : )
Lil' Woman says
That’s a freakin big nest!
Mrs. Jones says
That could be a picture of my grill! I went out to bbq something, lifted up the lid and that’s what I saw. What a mess!
Dang! That nest must be for Big Bird! LOL!!!!
That would be a fun site to open and find when you want to grill. Yuck.
Sandy Toes says
They can make you laugh and cry all at the same time.
Jodee Leader says
What a hoot! We have had one before too!
That’s one way to get a nest for home decor! What kind of bird is nesting there? Good grief it’s huge!
What a cleaver way to get a jump on dinner! No running to the store, just light up the ol’ barbie
OK. seriously, can’t leave us hanging like this! There has GOT to be more to this story!!!
Rambling Girl says
Dang must be some huge bird! lol
LOL Did he put all that in there?
Jennifer Juniper says
What built that nest? Turkey buzzards??? (are turkey buzzards a real thing or only in cartoons?)
You’re going to have to whip up some white icing and pipe it into big bird poop to help make this realistic! What a -huge- nest! Maybe it’s some ducks? Maybe “shifty-looking” husband realized he’d get a new grill out of the deal… 🙂 Too funny- started my morning out with a laugh- thanks!
That is one.big.nest. What kind of birds are you growing up there?
The Momma says
Oh so it’s ostrich season now huh? 🙂 Looks like we’ll be keeping our grill shut, all the time. 🙂
OMG! I can’t believe how big that stinkin’ nest is. Please let us know if hubby is going to let the birds keep it or tear it down!
Dee-Zigns Handcrafted Jewelry says
I would be very scared to see the size of the bird that built that nest, especially so close to your house! Broom it!
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! That could have been a conversation between me and my hubby!
Miss(es) Canadian Pie says
Hahaha, oh my gosh! Now that’s a story! I think I’d be bummed because I couldn’t grill some hamburgers. Sheesh!
Susie from Bienvenue says
You are SO funny. Oh, I love to read your blog! Thank you for always being a good read!
Wow! That is the biggest birds nest I’ve ever seen other than an Eagles nest!
Em @ Bunch of Scrap says
Good gracious! That is the most massive nest ever!
LOL looks like a snipe’s nest..
Oh my! Is that for real?! It is huge!
M.L. @ The House of Whimsy says
Duplex? Looks more like a bunch of Condo’s are going up. : )
M.L. @ The House of Whimsy says
P.S. Be sure to hang onto it for your Fall cloche display. Hee-hee!
To The Moon and Back says
Oh my! That is quite a nest…maybe you can frame that one when they are done?
Chris, I wanted to ask you, have you by any chance used magnetic paint?
Amanda@Imperfectly Beautiful says
WHOA…that is one big ol’ nest!
That’s a big nest. How will you grill hamburgers if they live there all summer?
Buzzings of a Queen Bee! says
That is crazy! Your hubby doesn’t think he’s so smart now, does he? 🙂
Southern Fried Gal says
I say better a bird’s nest than a rat’s nest. DH went to open our FIRST grill one day and a big fat rat was sitting in the middle of a nest – yuck! Our house backed up to a creek and we got all kinds of crazy critters there. We have since moved and got a new grill. I could never eat anything cooked on that grill after that – double yuck!
Wholesale Printing says
LOL. I didn't know that birds can make nests on grills. I thought they prefer trees, haha~
What kind of birds live there?
