[bird nest with chickadee egg]

architecture in nature.. birds build some intricate nests.. not sure what kind of bird made this nest, but i found it last fall on the ground after some heavy winds.. the egg doesn't go with the nest.. that is a little chickadee egg that was evicted by a wren that wanted the bird house more..

I think my favorite architecture comes from nature too. This is beautiful!

Great find!  I like how the photo relays the textures and you can see the skills of the bird.

It amazes me how well they construct their nests . I think about the storms that blow through this area and then the nests how they stand up to almost anything.

We apparently were both looking towards nature for the theme architecture smile

Great photos again, Sherry.  I read a suggestion a couple of weeks ago to place the winter coat hair that my 2 horses are shedding in a container that the birds could take to soften their nests.  So far, I've only seen two birds doing it, but it's not something I can spend hours per day watching for.  Hopefully . . .

Using the nests for this challenge absolutely qualifies as a perfect OTB.  grinning

Wonderful for architecture theme!
They are amazing creatures, and every species builds their nest differently.
