i was just saying to my son yesterday, "you know with this warm weather, the birds are gonna get confused and start working on their nests". so today i go into my shed to get out my Easter decorations. the door had been left open for who knows how long and what a mess i found! the boxes were open and my easter grass and fibers were all over the place. first i thought maybe a mouse had been in the boxes since they love to live in my shed.. then i thought, wait maybe my son and his friends were playing around at here and decided to open the boxes. but then i looked up and saw what really was going on. "someone" had been using my easter grass and fibers to build a nest. it was tucked away in the corner in some sticker bushes i picked in the back field and it is nestled between the gas can and my extension cord. so i tiptoed every so quietly out in hopes of catching the rare beauty that made this nest. i'll have to keep an eye out!
**update: this is a faux story! apparently when i wrote it, it sounds like it is indeed true. i've had many emails inquiring about this - so i just thought i'd share, that the story is made up.
That is so wonderful!ReplyDelete
Is this for real? I think it is the best thing! What a fun nest to be hatched into! So fun.ReplyDelete
And you put the flower on it, right? I can believe the birds made the nest, but I don't think they're enough concerned with decorating to add the flower. Could be wrong.ReplyDelete
sorry, laurel, i had nothing to do with this nest.....ReplyDelete
That is crazy! Are you sure the boys aren't playing a joke on you?ReplyDelete
I can't wait to see if the bird actually lays eggs in there. So cute!
That is the coolest thing EVER!! Btw, I'm in Camden County. Where down the shore are you? Thanks for visiting my blog~ it's nice to meet someone from my neck of the woods!ReplyDelete

It's a sweet nest and a sweet story. Your birds color coordinate their nesting material nicely. Do you suppose they had a color wheel????ReplyDelete
Very cute and clever.ReplyDelete
