One thing I love about winter is that spotting bird nests is a little easier
without the tree foliage to shield these treasures from view.
These are two beautiful old nests found today.
The large one was in my magnolia tree, practically right in front of me all year,
though I just noticed it and I have no idea what kind of bird nested there.
The tiny one, a goldfinch nest perhaps, was in the hedgerows on my afternoon walk.
Constructed of grasses and leaves, it measures about three or four inches,
and was full of tiny seeds!
