...sometimes even a single feather is enough to fly. (Robert Maclean)


mystery woodland nest

During a warm spell a couple of weekends ago,
we started to uncover our outdoor furniture.

Imagine my delight to have found this sweet little woodland nest
tucked inside the bottom edge
of the tarp covering one of our chairs.

 pine needles
dried leaves

 upon closer examination
there's a little bit of plastic
and some hair.
maybe it's ours...
who knows!

 Does anyone know 
what delightful little creature
called this nest it's home?

I really have no clue,
but if you think you do,
please post a comment!  

I'm thinking a type of mouse,
but I could be completely wrong.


You can see the flat edge of the nest in this photo.

I don't remember exactly how it was when I discovered it,
but it seems that the flat edge may have been against the ground, 
so, in this photo, it could be upside down 
from the way it was actually inhabited.
