Empty Nesters

This little nest was greeting me by the front tree when I came home from work. I really hope it was no longer needed. I couldn't help but marvel at the construction. It looks like the mud was molded on a potter's wheel to hold the straw and grass together. There's even a little stuffing from a former dog toy of Kona's. What a great demonstration of resourcefulness! With some available materials, a lot of time, and even without the use of hands,
creatures are able to construct habitations like this. Amazing!
