i was afraid this looked like a recipe for disaster when we spied a nest by the pool last week. mama bird, however, didn't seem at all concerned about the precarious position she had selected.
so there was little surprise but a great deal of sadness that met the discovery of a fallen nest and two broken eggs...
(apparently, along with all the other things i thought i would never do, i have become a birdwatcher - albeit a rather inadvertent/passive/opportunistic one...this was a blue headed honeyeater i believe)
there was some new life found today to balance the nest tragedy - the first snow peas of the season!
