Do You Need a Bungalow?

Why a bird nest is not equipped with a set of sound system or a refrigerator?

This is the nest of tailor birds that starred in last April, I have never seen the owners since then. We build bungalows, birds never. Mother birds even sleep outside after eggs have been hatched.

As a temporary asylum, a bird nest is not luxuriously built. The birds enjoy rain drops as Cola, the surround sound systems in the Nature, earth’s the bed and sky’s the quilt.

I think of this again when I saw another new born this morning. I tend to relate this to a spider I found nearby.

A bird flies, and a spider swings; they re-cycle and build. We walk and run, so we need bungalows.

I last thought a spider needed a pair of sunglasses. I can be wrong.

You have raised an interesting question!
We seldom enjoy the nature like animals does....

That baby bird seems like the universal cry of the universe.

Did you climb up a tree to get that first shot?!!!

We don't need a bungalow. Ajahn Brahm says that if you wish to move, move to a smaller house.

The baby bird with open mouth is just awesome.

Oh what beautiful pictures, Rainy! I can almost hear all that chirping! I might downgrade to a bungalow someday when my knees get to shaky to climb stairs - *sigh*

A bird's nest does not have a sound system or a refrigerator because then humans might want to live in them. The birds would then have to live in a human house.

Lol)..my dad would refer to us as(the members of the asylum), well, this was enjoyable! Yes, I see what you mean..the birds who starred in April have moved on. I wonder if they could turn those empty nests into eye patches for some injured forest dweller? Perhaps the heat got to me today!

Although it is not luxuriously built, it was lovingly built to greet those cute bird.

We probably want a lot more than we truly need. The baby bird and spider are cute.

Very beautiful bird nest photo!

Birds like open air housing. Easier to fly and land. No need for a bungalow or garage. Also easier for momma bird to hear her baby cry like in your photo.

We engage contractors to build a NEST!

Such a sweet newborn, with its beak open, waiting for breakfast, perhaps?

Now that would be a sight, a spider with sunglasses..or, perhaps, gloves!
