Potential Crow Nursery

The Madrona Forest Crows are again building their nursery and may have already laid their eggs.   Today on the trail I found two nests in the trees.   I decided to photograph them even though I was not certain if they are current or from prior seasons.   While I was watching with my binoculars and taking zoom photos I picked out in the old snags a watcher.   Pretty soon a pair came and lighted in the branches too.   I take this as a sign that these nests or perhaps one I can’t see are active.

Bird watching is an exercise in patience.   One must learn to just stay still and see what happens.   I find I am never disappointed and would have missed wonderful things if I had rushed on with my life.   Slow down & smell the roses or watch the crows fly.  See what you would miss if you are playing with your electronics.
