I photographed this nest 05 July 2018 and it was empty. I hadn’t seen any birds hanging around it or taking care of it. Not so now. I heard these baby Mockingbirds while on my front porch and saw that the nest is occupied.
When I walk past this, I always think it looks like a duck.
This time I followed the instructions (well, mostly) in the course from Onlinecardclasses.com. Day 2 of the Simply Watercolor class.
We had some swallows using this nest but only for a short while. There were no baby birds in it this year.
