Bird’s Nest

April 21st, 2008 by Potato

The spring weather here has been fantastic this weekend — bordering on summer weather, even. I went out to sit on the porch and read today, and was surprised to find that a nest was blocking the door (which I partially destroyed going outside). It wasn’t much of a nest yet, but it was mighty impressive given that it was built in just a day! I thought though that it must be the world’s hardest working, dumbest bird though, to build a ground-level nest where it did. Then I noticed that above the door was more nest material, so it was possible that all the stuff on the ground was just what fell down from the area above the door. That would then make it an incredibly hard-working, sloppy bird (or perhaps it was a tandem system, with one bird bringing material in and dropping it on the ground near the door with the other to fly it to the top of the door and weave it?), although even the stuff piled outside the door was way more of a nest than the stupid pigeons ever built.

    Bah! The pile of crap/nest is back again! And I swear I saw pigeons out on the sidewalk this morning.
