I noticed some junk in our mailbox last week. Not the usual credit card solicitations and Sharper Image catalogs … this was debris. Sticks. Leaves. Yes folks, we have a bird’s nest in our mailbox, with one lovely brown egg in it: I made sure that our mailman knew about it, lest we end up with one scrambled brown egg: I’m worried, though. Every time I pass by I peek in the nest and no one’s home! And it’s cold today – why isn’t Mama Bird sitting on that egg? I’m going to refrain from “rescuing” it (much like I refrained from rescuing Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail) and hope Mama bird is just incredibly stealthy … Hopefully I’ll have baby bird pictures in the next few weeks!
