Hidden Neighbors

(Toledo, OH) During the warm months we see many of our neighbors at bird feeders, but their domiciles remain largely hidden from our scrutiny. I am always intrigued, though, when winter arrives and many of these structures become visible.

In a maple tree on my driveway there are no less than five visible nests at the moment, each representing some form of avian "family." Birds, of course, have no interest in learning how to build muscle fast, as their busy routines keep them in excellent shape year round.

Ever see an overweight bird? Perhaps this is a dietary insight.

Looks like a squirrel's nest to me. I've got several in the oak trees out front.
