mother's day

Surprise for Mothers' Day

I couldn't figure out why the brown thrasher was making so much noise- scolding and scolding! - and then I saw it, right at chest height, right next to the trail. No wonder she was worried!  What its is about a bird's nest that brings out the childlike wonder in us?  Those perfect little eggs nestled in that beautiful nest, created completely by instinct by the mother bird.  What a lovely surprise!
