The Cornell Lab of Ornithology is hosting a “Funky Nests” contest for their Celebrate Urban Birds project. The above image is of a wren nest in a basket in my backyard (Atlanta, GA). For the contest, I composed a quatrain of Latin poetry (dactylic hexameter) addressing the bird. Check it out in the entry here (or click the picture above).
Check out the following video, too, of the wren feeding her young. (I’m one of the voices in the background wondering if the video will work.) That entry is here.
Submit your own pictures in celebration of urban birds! Let’s show the little guys that we appreciate them.
