2 comments on “Bird Nests: Mysterious and Known

  1. We have at least a half a dozen robin’s nests scattered throughout our yard, and one of them had the misfortune of using some of that same white plastic. We found one of the babies hanging from its next by one leg, which was completely entangled in the plastic and broken quite badly. I’m not sure where the rest of its nestmates were or how long it had been there, since it was all the way at the back of our yard, but my husband happened to be mowing the grass and spotted the maddened fluttering. 🙁

  2. Put the Orange out and within a day we had the Baltimore oriole. the female is about as pretty as the male. ours has a black patch on its breast and no black cap.
    It also loves the hummingbird feeder.
