Day 147 - Who's got the best nest?

(Click on any photo to enlarge.)

Who's got the best nest?  That was my question as I spied nest after nest on my walk today along the Spring Ridge walking paths located near the entrance to the subdivision on Rt. 144.

I have a jam packed afternoon and evening planned, in addition to needing a few groceries, so I parked at the Weis at Spring Ridge and took off down their walking paths.  The black topped path goes through wooded areas, passes by some apartment complexes, goes by a school and some professional offices, and then cycles back around to the grocery store.

Housing Choices
On my walk, I kept seeing nests, in both bushes and in trees.  Some were messy, some were neat, some were trailing plastic.  It reminded me of the children's book by P.D. Eastman called The Best Nest.  I doubt any of the ones I saw today would be chosen by the finicky Mrs. Bird.

The sun is shining today and the 35 degree temperature felt positively balmy after the weather we have had the past week.  By the end of the walk, I had unzipped my coat and taken off my scarf and gloves.

Enjoy your Sunday!
