After the Storm

 

Hello Everyone!

I’m sure you’ve heard about the tornado’s that

Indiana and Kentucky have had this past week.

As of today there have been 30 fatalities, still counting, with more than 300 hurt.

   My heart sincerely goes out to these folks. 

  As Albert and I were walking this afternoon this little bird nest just

tumbled to the ground right in front of us.

When I see these little nests I think about how hard these little birds

must have to work to build their homes.

So I decided to consult with Mr. Google about nesting and etc. and I found out they are not

so bird-brained after all!  Our feathered friends ‘learn’ to build better

nests, claims scientists.

Scientists have shown that birds use experiences to refine the

construction of their nests and make fewer mistakes

as the months go by.  The builder of this little nest did a great job because

it weathered the storm.

Only 16 more days to the first day of SPRING!

Sunshine and flowers…..what better therapy for the soul.

I loved all your spring pictures, but when I saw the snow pictures it made my heart sing! I don't see any snow here where I live, and I just love to see pictures of it. I have a thing for birds too, and the story about the nests was interesting to me.

Goodness me what weather Mother Nature has dished out this winter.
Your spring vignettes using the bird's nest are lovely.

Beautiful pictures! It has been a really weird Winter here too...not much moisture in the air...and wind...so much wind! Not anything like you have had...just constant wind blowing at about 45 mph! Your snow looks wonderful!
