This tiny bird had a beak full of nest materials at the Japanese Tea Gardens in San Francisco. On Today’s Date in the Past: Less than 24 Hours in Lexington… Keep Out

Last year I looked high and low, near and far, to find a bird’s nest with eggs.  As luck would have it, after all of my efforts, I discovered a nest right under my nose in the tree in my front yard. History repeated itself this year, only this time the nest I found was […]
