Even For Around Here...


...that's an impressive amount of wool in a bird nest!  This nest is in the redbud tree in front of the Wool House.  I may take the zoom lens out this afternoon and get a close up to see if I can identify which sheep that is.  From here, maybe Ewen McTeagle?

  1. What a nest!! If the birdies ever fall out they'll get lost in all the wool. Liddy appears to be thriving and plumping up despite her unusual tastes in food.

  3. How did the birdie get all that wool? I am reminded of a story in the book I used to learn to read, about a bird plucking the whole of a lion's mane, one hair at a time, for its nest. Any idea what kind of bird? Looks like possibly a wood thrush. Keep us posted!

  4. I think I would have preferred that wool as a LINING, rather than a foundation! Is that one of those earthquake-proof foundations? I would have thought the tree branch took care of that.... ;-)

  5. Wow, enough to spin into a small skein. ;-) Would love to have seen the bird fly it there - a Herculean task!

  7. Can you tell us what leads you to believe it is Ewen? Color? Staple length? A shepherd's love?
    I agree with Michelle those are some great shock absorbers. You never know when the wind will pickup.
