A Bird in the …

We discovered that a  small bird had made a nest holding tiny eggs and one hatchling on our kitchen deck.

My husband found the nest in the nail pouch of his tool belt.

It had been hanging over a saw horse since Spring Break.

In order not to disturb the nest, we moved our camping burner, pancake ingredients, pot for mixing, matches, plates, mugs, tea pot and utensils to our shower pallet next to the cabin for cooking that night.

After cooking, eating and washing dishes, we carried it all back.

Mama Bird is continuing to mind her nest.

It is all right for us to keep cooking at the other end of the deck.
