It currently is home for the fourth clutch of house finch babies. That gray fuzzy area is actually four baby finches. Babies on board makes it difficult to water the plant, so it is slowly withering away.
For some reason the mommy keeps laying eggs here. The first three never made it to fledgling age. We aren't exactly sure what happened to them. One day they'd be there and the next they'd be gone.
Motorcycle Dude is making bird houses for next season. Hopefully the parents will prefer them to my plants.
