The suit of armour on the deck is inhabited by a Carolina Wren's nest and 5 eggs.
they build nests in some wild places! but these guys obviously knew a safe spot when they saw one....
My cousin lives in the Ozarks and I mentioned reading that wrens like nests in the sun. He just laughed and said, he hangs in his jacket under the carport and they will nest in the pockets if he leaves it there to long.
Yep, Carolina wrens are creative nesters. I have pulled old nests out of a jacket pocket, handyman belt, and this year - my son't motorcycle helmet - kevlar safety!
