The last few weeks we've been cleaning up small branches every few days from our lawn.
The crows are busy these days breaking branches from our trees. .
to build their nests.
We often wonder ..
why they don't take the branches from the ground.
Do they break one off. . .
test it for agility and dexterity and if it fails to meet their nesting standard. .
it gets dropped?
Judy over at MyFront Porch has been posting these sweet little nests and I was reminded again this year by Kathy one of our MGCC that it was time to make these sweet treats.
Yesterday was a Grammie day here and in the morning
grand girlie and I did the crow work of building the nests. .
and waited for her Daddy to come to do the fun part.
Those touch of cocoa rice crisps have come in handy a few times already. .
and that bit of green grass to make a soft place for eggs is always a good idea.
There are two nests tucked in the refrigerator waiting for the lil' farm hand and Kanneloni Macaroni.
Hopefully. . .
there will still be some of those mini eggs and peeps left when they get here.
