I've Seen Everything Now

My son and husband called to me and told me to bring my camera.

I had no idea what they were going to have me take a picture of.

Picture One - My son's 1989 Ford F-150. He doesn't drive it often, but it comes in handy when he has to haul stuff. It had been sitting down next to our building for a week or so. We were loading stuff on it to take back to Lowes. Before leaving, he put up the hood to check the oil. It is a good thing he did.

Picture Two - Seems the inside of his engine is a little messy. I wonder what Charley is looking at.

Picture Three - He is pointing to a bird nest. Can you believe a robin has built a nest under the hood of my son's truck!!!

Picture Four - There are five eggs! I have never seen five eggs in a robin's nest before.
WHY and HOW a robin built a nest in his engine for, I would love to know.
She sure didn't want anyone to find this nest.

Robins never cease  to amaze me as to where they will build their nest.

But, I have to admit, this is the first time I have seen them build one inside a truck engine.

As I said in the title of my post - I've Seen Everything Now!

How about you?

Where is the weirdest place you have seen a bird build their nest?

  1. I have heard of birds and other animals nesting in cars before but this has to be the first one I have heard where the truck had not been sitting for years.

    I have seen birds nest on busy highway bridges.

  2. We went to the daughter's house for barbeque, but eneded up eating sandwiches because a bird had built a nest inside the lid of the barbeque grill.

    1. My neighbor has had them build a nest in their barbeque before, too. Sometimes they build a nest in the top of our propane tank, too.

  3. Wow! How neat is that. This made me smile.

  4. LOL! That does beat all. At work a bird built it's nest right on the tractor seat : )

  5. That's a new one for me as well! I hope he didn't need his pick-up for awhile.

  6. That is sooo amazing! Definitely never seen that before!
