There is a nest filled with disgustingly adorable baby birds lurking in the maple in yard. Sadly, it is guarded by a viciously protective parent- the bird version of the SoccerMom. I spent half an hour on a ladder with a zoom lens. Thanks the proficient swoop-n-stab technique of momma bird, I snapped about three clear photos (and a few more nerve endings.) For this, I declare WAR, MATERNAL BIRD. Tomorrow I will deploy the “dress-like-a-bird” method in an attempt to dupe her kill-human-predator instincts.
