» Repurposed Dispatches from the Potomac

Words and Images from Ed Felker


I followed about a mile of deer trails with the dogs this evening, searching for antler sheds. No antlers spotted, but I did find this special little nest that must have blown out of a tree with the recent high winds we’ve been getting. I don’t know what kind of bird made it, something about wren sized I would guess. But I love the threads of frayed, plastic tarp this industrious bird weaved among the twigs.

  3. I love seeing what birds incorporate into their nests. The coolest thing is when I see blond strands from my mule’s tail, which has happened once upon examining a tumbled nest. Neat find!

  4. Clever but sad. We have plastic all sorts of places it should never be.
