bird's nest  

posted by Michael Piwonka 6:38 PM
Some sort of little non-descript brown bird has built a nest in the cedar tree right outside my front door. The kids and I have been sneeking a peek at the nest from time to time. As of last week, there were 4 pretty turquoise-and-brown-mottled eggs in the nest.

Today I discovered 3 hatchlings, along with the fourth egg, in the nest.

No disrespect to mommy bird, but those little bug-eyed things are kind of ugly.

If you click on the picture to the right to view it in larger format, you can also see the beautiful remaining egg between the hatchlings.

The nest is well hidden inside the branches of the tree; we rarely disturb the birds, but I couldn't help but pull out the camera for some pictures.

random. arbitrary. completely unnecessary. yet refreshingly therapeutic.
