Several years ago, a robin built a nest outside my window, and I had the privilege of observing two sets of chicks being raised. The following year, I noticed a chipmunk (no doubt one of those who kept stealing my lily bulbs) taking a nap in the abandoned nest. Of course, I ran for my camera and woke him up as he unwillingly acted as my model. After getting my shots, I left the little lily thief to continue his nap.
Apparently, both my poor lilies and the robin’s nest were “just right."
