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.

Mme. la Vache enjoys birds, so she liked the nest photo. We both enjoyed the flowers.

"Louis" thanks you for visiting San Francisco Bay Daily Photo.

"Louis" also appreciates your comments about how sad it is that many today don't know the significance of "Hanoi Jane" - and worse yet, those who DO know and agree - even at this late date - with her and what she represents.

"Louis" posted another Memorial Day photo here, with more to come.

The bird is nice but the flowers are stunning.

What a sweet little bird designing her home with cotton balls --I guess she wanted the best `` cotton.

The white flower arbor is so beautiful. What a delightful yard. We cleaned out a couple flowerbeds today.

All I know is that obnixious Robin that sits outside my window each and every year wakes me at 4:30 a.m. !!
