    This is so neat ... I've been having this same experience ... I
    have finches nesting in a plastic hanging plant on my 3rd floor
    balcony (apt. complex). They are fun to watch. I knew they
    liked that plant, but I had no idea they were nesting in it ...
    my fiance who is over 6 ft tall told me there was a nest one day

    knew to expect us out there once in a while. Isn't nature just
