Under Construction

Always on the look out for the best material, she keeps a watchful eye. She travels far to find just the right touch. What will be most protective but yet soft for cushioning?

A quick flight through this backyard reveals a material she must have. She lands on the edge and begins to tug. A few quick pulls yields a mouthful of building materials. A quick jump to the other side, snatch a few more fibers. She looks around to get her bearings, then off she goes to the unknown nesting site. Several more trips complete her task.

I think I can use this.

If you happen to see a bird’s nest with coconut matte fibers, it may have come from my planter.

Just a bit more!

  1. Love the pictures. No nests in sight yet here. I have seen two orioles, and a hummer has returned to my feeders. Your piece does sound like poetry.

    You seem to have great luck with birds. I love how you helped us live in the moment with you as you watched mama gather her materials. Great pictures.

  3. This is a great slice “humanizing” the bird…I really like the lines, “She travels far to find just the right touch. What will be most protective but yet soft for cushioning?”. The pictures really add to the story–
