    the nest and the eggs are to small for a house sparrow. I got to deliver the nest from Barb. It is really a beautiful nest. Very artistic little bird, it knew just where to put the flowers for the best effect. But it is smaller then it looks and the eggs aren’t big enough and the brown spots are to small. It really is about half the size of a sparrows nest, I know it looks bigger in the picture. That shirt looks like she has a giant butterfly on her back. Did it come from cox aboretum. Love the pictures!

    Living “wild and free” – isn’t that the best?

    What a rad shirt! Z would likely give an eyetooth to come across a honest-to-goodness Monarch caterpillar.
