Nestled In

I went off into the woods to see if I could get a couple of shots of the water flowing down the stream. As I was fighting my way through the sticks, briars and brush I spooked a bird. Or I should say the bird spooked me when it flew out from practically under my feet. I looked down and was amazed to see this tiny bird’s nest. It was only about a foot off the ground. The mother bird was only about three inches tall so these babies are tiny. I should have changed lenses on the camera so I could have gotten an even closer shot but I wanted to take the photos as quick as I could. While the mother bird flew off when we startled each other she only flew over to another tree just above my head and squawked at me a few times. Wrinkled skin and all these little fellas are pretty darn cute.
