Kritique Kritics: The Field Trip

The Field Trip

On the subject of Debra's Bird Nesting Season post:

We once had a bird nest in a vent of our camper. Not unusual, except we used the camper all the time to transport our large family to different gatherings.

We discovered the bird's nest after arriving at the parking lot of White Sox Stadium! Everyone piled out of the van, then stopped when they heard the tiny "cheeps." Poor baby birds, who knows what they thought after an hour of driving on Chicago highways!

Their frantic Mama bird was waiting for them when we got back. The next day, my Dad built a birdhouse right next to the van, then moved the little family into it. The Mama seemed upset and skeptical about the new digs, but she was soon at home.

That family grew up and left--and through the next few years, the birdhouse sheltered many more nests. No more field trips to baseball games. :-)
