The suit of armour on the deck is inhabited by a Carolina Wren's nest and 5 eggs.

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!
