    A wonderful nest!

    A birdie made this nest, my sister found it in the tree. I climbed the tree and took a look at it, and found sunflower seeds! Will keep you all updated on it if I see anything new, although I won't check on it too often so I don't share off the birdie/birdies, I think it might be a Robin nest

    Baby bird has left the nest

    I came across this news story (with a video) about loggerhead sea turtle hatchlings and how the nest "boils" as the sea turtles emerge. The video is amazing, it takes a little while, but the nest "boiling" is stunning...

    A new skill?

    Expert tail-maker Sydney has been offering demonstrations on how to nest, however I'm not sure Adélie is learning much.... She is instead following in her fathers footsteps by following the other around and pulling out all the stored paper. *For anyone who doesn't know my birds, to clarify...
