To rebuild

A few weeks ago, I first shared about our new neighbors.

Tragedy struck them during a strong storm, knocking their nest from its perch. I just recently noticed exactly how tragic…

When the nest toppled down, an egg came down with it and cracked upon the stoop below.

Sometimes, Nature seems cruel. It’s not. It just happens. Nature didn’t have a storm to kill off that baby bird. It just happened. No malice, just wind.

But, Nature, in all of its forms, has a way of fighting back. Today, I had the pleasure of reading Stone of Destiny’s post on the power of Nature in places where humanity believes it has control.

The wind is one aspect of Nature. Wildlife is another.

They find balance together.

They rebuild.

Today, I noticed, in the place of the original nest, a new nest sits.
