How about a little series of photos showing the progress my Renton Crow family made this week building their nursery? Might seem a little boring but for those that are big crow or bird fans here is a chance to see how it happens.
To get you started here is where we left off on Thursday 3/22/18. Plus a link so you can see the video of the pair too.
I was off work on the following Friday, so the next photo I have is from Monday the 26th.
It is subtle but the size is growing upward to form a deep bowl so no baby will fall out. That day I also got this shot of one of the pair’s tail sticking out as they work away on their new home.
Tuesday came and the nest is still seeing a lot of action.
Sometime Tuesday before the above picture was taken, some frayed rope, fur or natural fiber appeared stuck to a branch. See it middle of the nest pile? I am going to try to get a better photo next week of that.
This tree shot gives you some perspective of how the tree has a broken top. This lends to a good foundation for the crows and a perfect view for me out of my window. The tree got damaged in an ice storm that happened about 5 years ago.
Wednesday came and construction is moving along.
Now it is Thursday and here is a new view of how big this crow nest is getting.
This brings us to Friday and our last view until I go back to work tomorrow.
Stay tuned for more on our favorite crow family next week.
