Nest of the Day

Since making the proclamation a couple of days ago that “For the most part nesting is over here at Collier Memorial State Park”, we are finding new nest daily.  Always seems to happen to me after I’ve made a big declaration. Go figure! Yesterday we discovered a Robin’s nest in a tree right in our camping site. Today we realized that a Douglas Squirrel is nursing young ones in a bird house literally a few feet away. But the best nesting photo of the day is the above photo of three WesternWood-Pewee chicks all squinty-eyed and fuzzy-headed. The parent was easy to hear and see close by, insect in beak, waiting for us to leave the proximity of the nest.

    That's why you chose birding over weather forecasting. You can be a nest-guesser instead of a weather-guesser. Way more people will appreciate your guessing this way!
