Squatter- a person who settles on land without title, right, or payment of rent.
I took this pic of a potted plant on my my front porch on July 15th. Doing pretty well.
A few days ago I went out to water and, at first glance, thought my four year old grandson had been digging in my plant. (I apologize sweetie). At closer inspection, I realized that I had a squatter.
Of all the acres of plants, bushes and trees this little bugger had to choose from, she had to make a nest in my planter. Oh well...she new I wouldn't chase her out. I haven't seen her yet to know what kind of bird she is, but she has startled the tar out of a few people as they unknowingly walked by and she whizzed out past them.
No eggs yet.
