I saw a crow building a nest, I was watching him very carefully, I was kind of stalking him and he was aware of it. And you know what they do when they become aware of someone stalking them when they build a nest, which is a very vulnerable place to be? They build a decoy nest. It's just for you.
~Tom Waits

Perhaps today's post was subconsciously inspired by Penelopeep, our family's lovebird, who likes to nest in half of a coconut shell. We've got birds' nests and a fungus today. :-)

Love each one, but especially the quail's nest with the ribbons, at least it looks like ribbons. Thanks, Tabatha.

Cool subject, Tabatha.

Loved the Birds' Nest Fungus in particular. But the nest in the traffic light takes top prize. :-)
