Lily Day 20

Her tiny body is exquisite. I love to watch her stretch out a wing, like a ballerina getting ready to dance.

People ask me what her nest of made of. The nest is built with so many wonderful little things. She’s got bits of moss, some tiny white down feathers that I wonder if she plucked from herself. Pieces of grass and dandelion seeds. There are a lot of spiderwebs, more were visible earlier, before she put more layers on. There are dog hairs and what looks like long gray hairs, maybe from someone putting out hair from a hair brush.

Photos from day 20 with Lily.
