The Nesting Crows

In the top of tallest tree at the top of the big hill behind my house a pair of crows is building a nest.

I took this picture from my third-story window,

and I’d estimate the nest to be at least two stories above that. Knowing that the lookout perch at the top of a ship’s mast is called a crow’s nest, I still hadn’t realized how high up these birds really live.

Here a crow arrives with a new bit of building material, perhaps a piece of grapevine?

I find them fascinating to watch.
