A gardener came today to cut back the vines beside our house (yes, we have the best landlords in the world). While working, he inadvertently exposed this sweet little mama. She refused to budge from her post, even with all the noise, and blades whirring millimetres from her nest. Luckily, little mama bird and her nest survived. Later in the afternoon I snuck back out to visit what she was so carefully guarding.
