N is for Nest.............
A little robin made this beautiful nest in one of the bushes we have growing beside the driveway.
She had already raised a family and this was a second laying that she had late in the season.
I really hated to see her build her nest here - it was only about 3 feet off the ground, and we do have a few feral cats around.
She ended up abandoning this nest before the egg hatched.
I kept an eye on it for the rest of the summer, and that little blue egg stayed right there - no squirrels or blue jays disturbed it.
As the winter wore on, the nest began to deteriorate, and the sides had collapsed in the middle.
She was back this season, as she was dive-bombing me as I walked past the bush this spring.
She ended up building in a new spot this year - a year older and a year wiser!
