Hidden Treasure

Hidden Bird's Nest

I almost missed this hidden treasure.   A bird's nest that somehow survived  winter's bluster.
It was creatively weaved together with small twigs and bits of mud.

The thought of one of God's small creatures building this sanctuary with such tender care made me stop and pause.

Wisely it had been built in the center of some thorny brambles.   Predators would have found it quite difficult to harm the occupants of this home.
Isn't it amazing how even the birds have been given wisdom to know how to create a safe place to nest?

Speaking of hidden treasure...think the little Leprechaun may be coming around this week.

Have a Happy St. Patrick's Day!

  1. And to you too Debbie. I found an old nest made from grasses in a climbing vine. Around here, robins build stick and mud nests.

  2. I've always marveled at what birds can do! They are master builders, proficient navigators and attentive parents. Without birds the world would be a grim place. Your painting is so striking. What a water-colorist you are!

  3. Debbie,

    Birds are really amazing aren't they? Animals in general just are so interesting when you consider the skill sets that they possess. Makes you wonder about the way life works.

    A beautiful watercolor too! Very delicate and lovely-not fussy-just right:)

    Have a good week! Lots of hugs in your general direction:)

  4. Now... you know I would adore this post, didn't you, Debbie?
    Wish I could take a real life peek at that nest. Avian architecture never ceases to amaze and thrill me. If is is a robin's nest then there is more mud than it looks under that lining. They are master builders of sturdy nests.
    Your painting is so beautiful. What a gorgeous blue you used. What color blue is it...or combination?
    Happy Paddy's day to you too. May it be a lucky one.
