Last Year's Nest

Alongside our trail through the forest this morning we came across this nest which had fallen from a tree in one of the winter storms. I was struck by the similarity of this nest to the bassinets I remember from my childhood. Basket-like cribs with pink & blue ribbons woven through them, because in those days you had no idea what gender your baby would be before it was born. Now here is a wild bird nest in the forest with pink and blue yarn woven carefully into it. I might expect something like this in our neighborhood but it's a bit disconcerting out here.

Some theorize that the talking mammals (humans) first got the idea of basket weaving from observing bird nests. Sounds plausible to me.

Sounds plausible to me as well when so much of the art & crafts of Native Americans, and other indigenous people, reflects the beauty of nature all around us.
