It was time today to get it out of the corner and back into the world, that painter’s pole I use for gaining perspective on this old world of ours. I had seen a couple of robin’s nests in my previous wanderings and thought maybe I could get some bird’s nest photos. So I dragged my friend A.G. out into the midday sun and the two of us went nest hunting. We found the robin nests that I had seen last week, but the green heron nest we discovered was not occupied and possibly left over from last year. It was also so high up I could barely reach it. I may have to bring a ladder for future investigations.
