Bird nests have always held a special place in my heart. I’ve been collecting them for years. Most of them shown here are 20 years old! Amazing how they can hold up when sheltered from the weather. The red winged blackbird use strips of blue plastic tarp to weave their basket shaped nests. I used to have one that had strips of Budweiser label woven into it. I display them during the summertime with glass or painted wood eggs… and always marvel at the craftsmanship.
