Default Redwing Nest

Good example of hiding in plain sight. Even after I found the nest I
couldn't see it in the camera's screen.

I can't tell if there are eggs yet; certainly not chicks. It's about six
feet from shore amidst the cattails.

Be warned that this pond is more "natural" (though man-made) and a good
less manicured than many here.
I just came in from taking the grandkids (5 and 8) around on the
paddleboat, and pointing out the hazardous life cycle of dragonflies,
punctuated by a leaping bass... I think it missed. This time.

Motion seed in that Redwing nest, so the babies have hatched. Mom or dad
were in a nearby tree expressing their extreme annoyance with our snooping.
