Description

My Labrador Retriever kept pestering a Holly Bush next to the barn. After I investigated, I relized it was a Brown Thrasher nest with two eggs. I place a barrier (a metal garden vine stand) in front of the bush to keep the Lab from gaining access. The nest is approximately 4 feet above ground and easy access to the Lab. The adults returned to the nest after about an hour.
