The Cornell Lab of Ornithology wants your funky bird nest pictures.
You know by visiting my blog that I love birds and birdnests.
I think a lot of my followers do too, so I thought I would post this challenge from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Their bird of the week happens to be the mourning dove! I found one of our baby mourning doves in my flower garden yesterday.
She blends right into the surroundings! Can you see her? I almost stepped on her. Click on the picture to see her close up.
Here is the camera's close up view of her. Isn't she pretty? They are almost grown when they leave the nest.
Now, back to the contest. Go here and click on funky nests in funky places for the information about the challenge, but wait till you've finished reading my post and answered my question.
Send in your entry by July 31st. There are some great prizes! I think my readers could have a good chance at winning. So take your picture or write your story and enter!
Have you seen any strange places where birds have built their nests?
I have! In our neighborhood I've seen them inside mail boxes, paper boxes, on top of ladders leaning up against buildings, over outside lights, inside buildings on shelves, etc.
Please comment. Tell me where you've seen some funky nests in funky places.
