In the Autumn trees
the leafless branches reveal
the secrets of Summer.

Thanks annie, pat and loren. Glad you liked it. The nest is that of a long-tailed tit.

What kind of nest is that?

Oops! Forget the question on the nest.... didn't see your post naming the bird...I think it popped up after I had left the question.

What a great photo! I'm going to have to GOOGLE long-tailed tit. I assume that is a bird? Our leaves here are just beginning to turn colors. We have no hidden surprises that are revealed. However, I found a bird's nest in one of my flowering plants. Apparently momma bird abandoned her baby. At first glance I thought the baby was alive and merely sitting quietly until I realized the baby was dead. Poor thing.

Thanks for visiting Debra' Isn't it lovely how our countries have sucy different birds. I find birds on Loren's site that I have never heard of. Long tailed tit is one of our prettiest birds. They work the hedgerows in Winter in flocks, twittering as they go.
