I spy with my little eye…a spring bird’s nest

    For a while now, Clint and I suspected that a bird frequented our porch and would perch on one of our hanging lamps. Today, we got a clue as to why a bird may be hanging around on our porch.

    As I was looking at the star jasmine plant I have climbing up a trellis I had erected, I noticed some dry twigs mixed in with the vines. It took me a little while to realize it was a nest.

    This is what I saw when I looked in:

      I just published an entry about baby hummingbirds in Loreto. When I went here to check it, there was your post about the nest on your porch. Two minds, two homes, one experience. I love synchronicity.

      • Wow Jane, this is quite the coincidence. I love your photo of the hummingbird, you got some a close up of it.

        P.S. There is a call for photos for the 2010 Loreto Calendar. Last year, all net proceeds went to Animalanida. This year, all proceeds will go to benefit the children at the Internado School in Loreto. So if you have a photo that shows the beauty and unique charm of Loreto, send them in to StarkSilverCreek (loretocalendar@starkinsider.com).

      When I got home today from the grand opening of my friend Misha's pilates studio, I noticed another nest being constructed in one of the potted Star Jasmine plants I have in our courtyard. <br />

      Clint's watching hockey and from the corner of my eye, I can actually see the bird constructing the nest. It is so wonderful that birds are enjoying our place as much as we do!
