Signs of Spring
I am so sorry little bird, I really didn't mean to uncover your nest and take away it's moorings. A lamp post off our back deck has become totally overrun by old ivy in the last 2-3 years, and this was the week I decided to remove it all. Little did I know that this nest was resident among the topmost parts, and I had nearly destroyed it before I realized it was there. Too late, I saw a third egg fall from the nest into the masses of ivy below.
We have to admire her sense of style, don't we? Who among us would think of using silver tinsel from old Christmas trees to decorate our nests?
