Baltimore Oriole Nest?

Mick found this nest -must have blown down from the tree. It was hard to photograph -it is kind of a droopy bowl shape like a Baltimore Oriole which we see sometimes in early summer. It's made with seeds of the cottonwood tree deep down in the bottom. The sad thing is to see some of the other things used in the building of the nest- the green strips which I don't know what they are and some fishing line!

Sleepy Toby

I feel like my daughter's little doxy- kind of sleepy and un-productive. But I found a good book that I can't put down -The Kitchen House. Kind of similar to The Help, and yet different- in the 1800's with a child from Ireland who comes to the south to live.
I'm still organizing the studio, a never ending project.
