"Birds are so much wiser than we! A robin builds a nest for robins. A seagull builds a nest for seagulls. They don't copy each other - or build themselves nests as described in The Birds' Decorating Magazine."
~Dorothy Draper

Some nets are rather simple and a bit untidy but some are so well and beautifully made. They are all born architects - Not like human beings.

Love these wild eyes, Lyn, and the composition with the main subject offset to the right is just right. I just pulled a copy for my wallpapers folder, thanks.

If you've ever wanted to make a difference but found it hard to believe that one person could... check out the Kiva Team Caedes discussion thread and discover that anything is possible.

Dorothy Draper has right, Lyn, although I have some doubts that the tricky behavior of the cuckoo should be called wise (☺).
Fine one for the Wednesday B&W challenge!

The clarity is stunning, the eyes of this seagull are spectacular in this scene, and the detail and texture of the wood comes through perfectly. Favorite for sure.
