Bird Stops Man and Machine

A Carolina wren built her nest and laid eggs inside my sawmill .  I'm a hobbyist who mills logs into lumber for friends and neighbors.

When I began a milling job recently, a quick movement around a shield which guards the main pulley caught my eye.

The job lasted three hours as I suspected a nest inside the mill housing. A few days I removed bolts to open the shield and discovered a wren's nest with newly hatched babies.  I closed the protective shield and halted production until the birds mature and leave their nest.

Have a good week!
