Here come the grapes, and birds?

Wow, the grapes are really taking shape this time of year.  This will be the 3rd year for this block of the vineyard.  We’re going to have a great crop!  We’ve just finished our hedging and halfway through our leaf thinning chores in the vineyard.  Verasion will be setting in a month or so.  Time to get the netting out to keep the birds and squirrels out.  Speaking of birds, check out what I found, not once but twice!  Some sweet mama birds and taking refuge in our grapes and laying nests.  I hope these eggs have not been abandoned.  I showed the pics of the nests to a friend and they said, “wait, aren’t birds your nemesis?”.  He was right!  Guess I just don’t have it in me to move the nests elsewhere.  I will have to make sure they are gone before the netting though.
