Change of residence
Readying the nursery
For new beginnings
For several years the magpies have built their nest in a tree just over the fence. In summer, the nest is hidden by the leaves, but in winter there is neither shelter nor concealment. This year, they decided to move to the next tree along. Does a tall evergreen count as being ‘upwardly mobile’ in the avian world?
Whatever their reasons, the new site, cupped within the topmost branches, gives me and the camera a perfect view and it has been a delight watching the pair haul branches too big to fly with up to their penthouse. With a little luck, I’ll get a good view of their offspring too when they arrive 🙂
