    just curious is the wreath in a highly used area? and if so what do you do to keep them not disturbed?

      Yes, it’s hung on a window on my front porch. Now we use the back door , so we don’t disturb our sweet tentants!

    The wreath is hung on a window on my front porch. Once we spotted the nest we started using the back entrance to the house.
