Winter...trying to make the best of it
Finally, our latest snowstorm has passed. Hundreds of schools were closed here in northern Michigan yesterday.
Taking the back roads to town recently, I noticed the little bare twiggy trees planted in rows near the city limits. Almost every one held the remains of a well crafted bird nest once hidden among the leaves, now exposed to the rain, wind and snow. It seemed as if once a mother bird began crafting her cradle, the tree was off limits to other expectant parents as each sapling contained one and only one nest.
