Bird found a readimade structure to pad her nest.

The Birds Nest

Many folks keep a few old coffee cans around the house to put small items in. As it happens, I had the one above, empty, outside on my open air patio on a small set of shelves last spring when the mother bird decided to take advantage of the readi-made structure. Tucked up inside the shelf, I hadn’t noticed until time came to attend to some chores that required moving the set of shelves.

As the weather was just warming up, I was also worried that my increased presence outside would hinder the little bird who I noticed flying inside and out continuously bringing back worms for the the freshly hatched chicks. I was also afraid that if I tried to move the coffee can condo to a new location away from my work area, the mother bird would simply abandon her chicks.

To my chagrin, I really had no other choice but to place the bird condo in another spot out front – but hopefully not too very far away. I watched for quite awhile after moving the nest, and finally I began to loose hope as the little bird didn’t seem to figure out where the new location was, or if she intended to resume her matronly duties.

Then… finally, I saw her sneaking around from the other direction and sure enough she finally accepted the new location of the coffee can condo and resumed feeding her chicks. I kept an eye on them for awhile and one day when they got big enough – off they went.

    FLAG BURNING VIDEO!

    Absolute power corrupts absolute, and as I recall Ted Turner, wise man that he is, once called Christians “stupid.” He eventually apologized, but for what I don’t know. While Christians are foolishly attempting to take over government with religion, the potential grows for a flag burning amendment that would essentially set the stage for the dissolution of all basic constitutional rights to unravel like a braided sisal rope without a boy scout.

    Where’s Colin Kaepernick?

    Our leaders are in denial of what is obvious at face value. The biggest threat to the future of this country is the incompetence and corruption of law enforcement.

    Merry Christmas! We elected who?

     Somehow, someway, the election process must be restored to something that includes everyone in the process, not just the caucus to be first under the wire.

    Day Late And A Warhead Short – For Now

    Here’s another part of the equation. It has already been my estimation that Trump’s wide open Wall Street policy will result in another economic crash – just like it did because of previous Republican administrations. Well, I’m not an economic expert, and vectors come with a lot of variables, but it seems to me that economic crashes in this country have gotten successively worse with the next one on track to be a 1929 humdinger – or worse.
