Any port in a storm – whew!  #Wordless Wednesday  #The eagle up top means birds are welcome here, right??

Wordless Wednesday – allow your photo(s) to tell the story.

About Linda Schaub

This is my first blog and I enjoy writing each and every post immensely. I started a walking regimen in 2011 and decided to create a blog as a means of memorializing the people, places and things I see on my daily walks. I have always enjoyed people watching, and so my blog is peppered with folks I meet, or reflections of characters I have known through the years. Often something piques my interest, or evokes a pleasant memory from my memory bank, so this becomes a “slice o’ life” blog post that day. I respect and appreciate nature and my interaction with Mother Nature’s gifts is also a common theme. Sometimes the most-ordinary items become fodder for points to ponder over and touch upon. My career has been in the legal field and I have been a legal secretary for four decades, primarily working in downtown Detroit, and now working from my home. I graduated from Wayne State University with a degree in print journalism in 1978, though I’ve never worked in that field. I like to think this blog is the writer in me finally emerging!! Walking and writing have met and shaken hands and the creative juices are flowing once again in Walkin’, Writin’, Wit & Whimsy – hope you think so too. - Linda Schaub

      Hi Eilene – I am thinking maybe a sparrow. I wasn’t all that close to it and it was a very gray day. I saw the nest before I saw the bird, so snapped the picture, then not long afterward it came flitting by and dipped into the lamp post head (like it was perfectly okay to build a nest there). 🙂

    So cool! Maybe the eagle will scare away predators from the nest. 🙂

  7. Yes, birds are savvy with picking the right spots to nest-build. Man-made structures don’t sway in the wind like trees do. And there’s the protection from rain and hail. 😉

      They sure lucked out here Tom. Great protection as long as the grass-like materials don’t touch the bulb. Robins are the worst for wanting to build in inopportune spots and they will not take “no” for an answer!

  8. Birds are so resourceful! But how did it get in there? One of the glass panels must have been broken…

      Yes, they are Barbara and I’ll attest to that as Robins and Sparrows build their nests where they shouldn’t sometimes and get angry when the beginnings of a nest are torn down. I looked on the ground beneath the pole and didn’t see any glass, so I wonder if someone removed the glass panel as a joke?

    Perhaps the glass panel has been missing a long time. I hope the bird gets to live out its nesting period safely. Smart birdie!

      I was wondering about that too Zazzy – did someone break it out, or it fell out? I saw no jagged edges or glass on the ground. That little Mama was nervy and savvy moving in, but likely pretty pleased with herself. [Hope you are feeling better.]

    It looks nice and cosy and enclosed! I used to have morning doves nest behind my outdoor lighting fixture, until I got new ones closer to the house, and were they ever miffed about it….

    • Linda Schaub says:

      Yes, a perfect place for a nursery Joni! I believe they would be miffed. Every time I take down a Robin’s nest they do something annoying as payback and they chatter at me. They like those lamp fixtures, no one is bothering them there.

    Wow what a great place to nest, she will probably return next year to this great site, unless they fix the lamp!

      It sure was a great place. I’ve not been back since I took the photos and they’ve likely already hatched and fledged. I can’t blame Mama if she returns next year. I wonder how that glass pane got broken?
