Earlier this spring, there was quite a bit of activity on our Italian Stone Pine trees. Not so much now, in the heat and drought.
Each year, we buy a small Italian Stone Pine and use it as our living Christmas tree. We plant it in February.
A couple of days ago I found two bird nests: one in an Italian Stone Pine tree near the driveway, the other in a honeysuckle vine on our fence. Today I decided I will photograph the nests every day and post the photos.
The nest in the Italian Stone Pine tree has four baby birds in it. I’m not sure what kind of birds, as I haven’t been around to see a parent fly in or out.
The nest in the honeysuckle vine belongs to a Mockingbird; it had three eggs in it. Unfortunately, today it was empty.
