I just realized that in sharing these photos, I am revealing some of the less appealing aspects of our rented house, like the busted screens. Ah well....this is what the girls and I did this morning. Just above Eliza's bedroom window there are starlings building a nest. If you watch long enough (which we did), you can see them come and go, their little toes holding on to the edge of the gutter, their cluck and chatter as they discuss where to put the various plant material each has brought to the construction site.
I wish we could see the nest - is it neat? messy? large? small? - but nevertheless, we were very entertained.
