Well, then, my darlings. You got the last nest without breaking a sweat. In my quest to give you a challenge, we’ll try this one. Not only is it a nice nest, it’s in a lovely location.
Obviously, this isn’t a recent shot. It’s from last spring, when the flowers were creating botanical clouds and there was actually more than five minutes between rain storms. There were birds, and I in fact have shots of one from the spring before, which may or may not be related to the nest. You shall have it soon – but first, we’ll see how superb your nest identifying skills are.
I love spotting nests. Sometimes, they have got baby birds in them, and that’s delightful. But even when there’s no bird present, they’re a marvel. I love these marvelous little constructions, built by dinosaurs. It’s amazing what the little buggers can do with beaks and feet. I’d like to see us build our houses with only our teeth and our toes.
Phenomenal view. Makes me wish, to some degree, that I was small enough to fit in a little tree-house with cherry blossoms waving overhead. I’d love to lie back gazing at the patches of blue sky through the flowers. At least I’d like it up until the next rainstorm came in…
