An excuse for not mending the fence.............................it's Robins front door

My fence is due to be replaced due to age and wind damage... but this little fella has been using a hole in it to enter and leave my garden... much to my amusement.

I have seen it darting in and out quite a few times and made a few attempts to capture the moment.
It took me three days to finally get one worth sharing.

What a great visitor to have. Get a new fence and add the hole to it. Maybe make it a little bigger and paint a border around the hole. Problem solved. My husband would say "You're not putting a hole in my brand new fence." I would say "We used to buy new blue jeans in the 90's and add holes to them because they were cool so I'm doing it to the fence."

LOL! That's a great shot! Clever little bird. Maybe you could have an entrance built in to the new fence.
