The location was on a busy street in Tyson's Corner, Virginia.
The "Take It!" came as I was pulling out from a parking place in front of a post office and happened to see the pictured bird's nest.
What attracted me to it was its proximity to the street. It could not have been much closer. The nest was just above my reach which seemed to also be an unlikely location for setting up a home
for the summer and supposedly raising a family - lol. Another thing that was of interest were the finger like upright broken branches that were incorporated into the nest structure.
The After Take: Everyone seemed to enjoy this on the edge of odd demonstration of nature. Many acts of animals defy human sense of logic - but then, that is a part of the fun of observing what we
can of it.
Most birds migrate south in the winter. I have never asked myself this nor read anything about it - but I wonder if they return to exactly the same place when they do go south and if they
have a similar nesting situation which they have to repair every year?
Ah, the mystery of it all - lol
Best wishes to everyone,
