“Grandma, I had a great day at school! We learned about birds!”
Four-year-old August is as passionate about birds as I am. “What did you learn?” I ask.
“Birds will use just about anything to build their nests, even shoe laces.” Her eyes are wide and her expression radiates amusement.
Every morning this week, a large crow has worked diligently to prune twigs from a tree outside my window, fussily discarding the ones that won’t work, and flying off with those that measure up. I call August to let her know.
“That’s so cool!” she replies.
The COVID lockdown has been a boost for the restoration trades. New furniture, hardware, flooring, and so on are hard to come by. Everyone has the same idea: nesting.
This week share your experience of nesting, through story, verse, photos, or other. Create a post and link back here, or leave a comment below. As always, the word nesting does not have to appear in the post, but the theme should be apparent. Look forward to your responses.
