In Honor of Spring

One of the many reasons I love spring is seeing birdnests in use. It is so enjoyable to see the eggs and then watch the parents tend to their baby birds.

Just like birds who will use a variety of materials to construct their nests, artist Phil Lichtenhan has collected “found metal/wire”  to weave his nests. The Shaw Cramer Gallery Martha’s Vineyard has been displaying his work for some years and each time I go I think “one day I’ll buy one of his nests”.
