I found this little bird nest on a branch many years ago.
It always lay across a vintage egg basket that hung from
the old valance over the kitchen window.
Now the valance is gone (along with the old cupboards)
and I have had no place to put this nest.
I sat it on top of my vintage medicine cabinet in the
I thought these two little birds might want to start a family. :)
What is this nest made of?
I see birch bark, grass, reeds, twigs and moss.
It's all intricately woven together and gently, yet strongly,
wrapped to the branches.
I wonder how many hours it took the birds to build
this home for the eggs the mother would lay.
How many times did the birds fly back and forth
collecting bits of material for their home.
All intricately woven.
Perfect for the size of the bird and the eggs.
God always amazes me with His creation.
It will soon be nesting season in our part of the world.
Maybe in a few weeks we'll see birds flitting about
the yard gathering bits of this and that for their
new home or perhaps rebuilding last year's home
that had some winter storm damage.
I can honestly say that I can't wait to see some grass
showing, especially when it turns spring green.
Wishing you a blessed week my friends!
