Fixer Upper Awaits


These photos were taken on April 16, 2022.


The location was at a moderately rated hotel in Largo, Maryland.


The "Take It!" came as I had been observing this tree during the winter and found a new bird's nest in a different location than one I had photographed several years ago. Time has passed and it is now spring and the tree is in blossom and is waiting for the industrious birds who built this little marvel to return. I gave the title to this as a fixer upper as I imagine when the birds return they have some repair work to do to get ready to have it once again be a home in which to raise a new family.


I marvel at this annual ritual and the way nature provides us with a multitude of ways for us to observe it.


We have such a wonderful planet - I hope we can save it.


Sending my very best wishes to everyone,

    Lol Imagine if the show Fixer Upper did an episode on this birds nest.

    Why get floral wallpaper when you can have the real thing!

    It amazes me how a tiny bird can spend half the year on the other side of the planet and know exactly where to find their nest.

    Good spot for a home. I bet those flowers are popular with the bugs. Those birds have a buffet waiting for them right outside the nest.

    I didn't notice the nest for a good 5 minutes. I was looking at the flowers then it just sort of popped out at me.

    Thank you to everyone for your thoughtful, imaginative, and fun observations.

    It would be lots of fun to have each of you join me for a day and give you one of my spare cameras and see what we could come up with at the end of the day.

    Your input is a constant imspiration to me. Thank you again. Regards Bruce
