The Full Nest
A little Carolina Chickadee is sitting on five off white speckled eggs in a bluebird box that is attached to a rod iron rose arbor on the side of my house. It looks like the nest is made of grass, moss and cotton balls. Cotton balls! Where could they have come from----someone's trash? I can keep an eye on her comings and goings from my library window. Has anyone noticed that the birds are not waking us up at 2:00 A.M. these days with their courtship songs? Like we humans most of the birds have settled down to concentrate on parenthood with all its demands.
