I was looking around my bedroom the other day and thinking “We should repaint this.” Our bedroom is currently a lovely light lavender-grey, a color picked not even two years ago. There isn’t anything wrong with it. In fact, it’s barely been up long enough for me to dislike it or grow sick of it. And yet, I’m incredibly ready for a change. In fact, in every room of my house, I’m longing for something new to look at. We don't want to move, but we need things to look different.
When walking, I like to look for birds' nests, high and low. Sighting one is a sudden delight. Back inside my home, curiosity leads me to look through books to learn more about the nests I’ve seen – and the ones I haven’t seen. For others who are pleased by and curious about nests, here are some useful resources, all available online.
