Focus on Life Getting Outside

 
Our Assignment this week is to get outside.
 
This nest hung on through winter storms  and heavy winds.
Notice the bit of colorful string at the bottom.

The nest looks like it is waiting patiently for its spring occupant.

Alice that is a great photo. It's amazing to watch a bird build her nest. Yes they do like string.

I have a nest just like that right outside my window, reminding me that if they can hold out until spring, I can too!

That's one of the things I love about winter - you can see all of the nests in the deciduous trees.

I love your shot of the nest - they are truly amazing constructions aren't they - incredible that it survived the winter weather.

Great photo of an abandoned nest. I always hang out yarn scraps for the birds to use for nest building in the spring.

Birds' nests are such a feat of engineering! A really great photo :)

Wonder if the nest will get used again... lots of birds use pre built nests! Spring seems a long way off here, inspite of the lack of snow!
