This has been one weird year, hasn’t it? With a lot of activities curtailed due to the pandemic, the days seem to inch along at a snail’s pace. Its seems like everyone could use some cheering up and what’s better to soothe one’s soul than looking at pictures of baby birds?
Birds build nests to provide a safe place for eggs and young birds to develop, and the variety of nests is as diverse as the birds themselves, although each species has a characteristic style. Join me as I explore some of the bird nests that I discovered in my walks around Verrado in the West Valley of Phoenix the spring.
