Birds Nest

American Robins, the red breasted bird, mark the return of Spring.
The cheerful singing of the male robins wakes us up each morning

This beautiful nest we found in a tree next to our front porch: Nature at its best!
What a true work of art this is!

It's placed in the crotch of our tree 5 feet above ground. The nest is made of grasses, a middle layer of mud, then lined with fine grasses.
I will keep you posted!


Dear friends,
Due to a right hand injury I can't paint already for 5 weeks.
(spontaneous rupture of my knuckle's tendon...)
My hand is resting in an (uncomfortable) splint, trying to heal.

Great shot! How did you manage to get so high?! Hope your hand is healed already and you're back at painting!

Artist Reply: They're building nests very low!! My hand is much better, not completely healed yet, but I do so much appreciate you're asking!! Not ready to paint yet... :((
