Bird brain

How clever birds are, to create something as beautiful and sustainable as this nest, found blown from its tree after a violent autumn storm. It makes me wonder who came up with the expression “bird brain”?

Clever bird creation

Speaking of birds, I want to share with you one of my favourite owls. He was(I think he looks like a he), a gift brought back from Italy by my parents. He seemed the perfect size to snuggle into this cosy nest.

The perfect home

He’s tiny enough to sit in the palm of my hand and is hollow with no base, perhaps he is a thimble? Far too beautiful to stick needles into though, I’d rather prick my finger.

  1. Oh, that’s cute! It reminds me of something I bought to decorate my husband’s house (with my tastes) when I still lived in Florida. I found an owl nightlight that looks like a wax candle and rests in a nest. It’s in the bedroom but we don’t use it because it is just so, so cute.

  2. I clicked … and what did I see a cute Lil Owl 🙂
    … and a wind blown nest find ! I found quite a sturdy but drooping out of a hedge but still just hanging in there yesterday on a walk … perfect for an awaiting blog post I had in mind 🙂
    Any idea Jen what bird created yours? Looks like a tiny little soft spot .
