I took a walk back in the woods today and found the empty nest that I’ve been photographing off and on for a year or more. During the winter months the nest deteriorated, and no longer resembled a well-formed nest. Just some mud and straw hanging in the niche of an old apple tree. Sometime over the past few days, the nest has been repaired. No one was home when I paid a visit late this afternoon and if it hadn’t been for the rebuilding, I would have thought it an empty nest as there were no other signs of occupancy.
