Anyone know what type of bird made these nests?!






Last week, we had a very windy night.  The next day, a few bird’s nest were laying in our front yard.  One in the backyard.

This made me sad… all that work, now on the ground.  But I was also highly interested in the amazing construction!  How do they know how to weave these intricate nests?!

Amazing.

Mother Nature is amazing.

Does anyone know what type of bird made these nests?

NEST PHOTOS

This one was my favorite.  It was made of horsehair and feathers.  So soft and cozy… very downy and warm.  I also find it fascinating that this bird who made the nest, only chose WHITE feathers and horse hair.  Why?!

THE OTHERS LOOK SIMILAR TO EACH OTHER – BUT DIFFERENT SIZES…

These two look like the same type of bird made them… however, one is quite a bit larger than the other.  They seem to have a mud base/floor.

I love how the larger one has a stick perch.  I can just imagine Mom or Dad standing on that to feed the babies.

Last week, Gillian (who trains Dalton) and I went down to Southern CA to pick up Annie!

Annie is going into training with Gillian, too!

PHOTOJOURNAL

The California coast line… we took the 101 which brings us through Malibu. Very nice ride.

My friend, Lor, had been documenting the last two years with Annie!

Lor hired also hired a professional still photographer to shoot Annie’s last day in Southern CA.

Heartfelt goodbyes

Lor hugs Gillian and wishes us a safe drive home

Off we go!

Annie in her new digs next to Dalton!

They have side by side paddocks and the use of the huge field around them. Dalton also gets turned out with the babies on several acres – he’s a great Uncle to them! (More on that later!)

Here they are! Two peas in a pod!

Annie looking at me as I drove away.

 

And now it begins… trail training!
