It was discovered yesterday on the rail at the edge of our deck. No more than 10 feet from the kitchen a momma bird built this beautiful nest. In order to show it I have pushed back some overhanging rhododendron bushes that obscured my view.
I haven’t seen many nests in my life, but I have to tell you I am impressed. This is a technological marvel, beautifully shaped and structurally sound. I don’t know what kind of bird built it–but I hope you do and will tell me.
There are no babies here. Hopefully they grew and flew. The other options are too gruesome to consider.
I wish I could have seen the nursery in action. I’m glad they chose my house as their house.
