>The Big Nest
Imagine our surprise when we saw a HUGE Birds nest in the Pine Tree.
We never noticed any birds constructing it. I have no idea when they did it.
I don’t even know what kind of bird it belongs to.
It ain’t a sparrow, that’s for sure.
One thing is sure, it’s a Big Flippin’ Nest. It’s as big as a 30 gallon trash can.
I’m wondering what’s going to happen in the Summer when we’re spending a lot of time out there. I hope we don’t interfere with the baby hatching.
It’s made of pretty strong twigs and it has a roof.
Maybe it’s an Owl’s Nest. I hope so, he can have all the Gophers he can eat.
After reading about them, I’m thinking Mrs. G. is right about it being a Magpie nest.
UPDATE: I just went out with my flashlight to see what was in the nest. I crept up close to the tree and BLASTED THE NEST WITH MY FLASHLIGHT.
Didn’t see anything.
I started to get my face up close to the hole and then I remembered.
Remember the movie Alien? Remember the Pods?
The thought went through my mind that if a big bird came shooting out of the nest into my face, they would find my dead body right there in the morning.
I chickened out and went back inside.
