It Is A Mystery

For those of you with email subscriptions to my blog, the photos and portions of the text today will look familiar; as it will for those of you who saw the link (which I forgot to delete) on Facebook. When, oh when, will I learn to schedule my posts immediately upon choosing a title in order to avoid accidentally clicking the publish option before I’m ready.  Obviously, WordPress isn’t ever going to implement a “safety net” pop-up for their authors, asking  ‘are you SURE you’re ready to publish this post?’.

Here is today’s post, with a few edits from yesterday’s tease:

We have a couple of birdhouses along the edge of our property, including this one, which definitely qualifies as an antique.

As I walked in that area of the yard recently, I noticed this:

I found it to be a bit confusing….first of all, did a bird small enough to be interested in making a home in this birdhouse CARRY that huge stick to this point?  Did she struggle with it, trying to make it fit through the front door, then finally give up?

There’s a slight chance, I suppose, that a strong wind may have blown the limb into the birdhouse? Maybe it was being transported by an osprey or eagle and was dropped and landed there?

Your thoughts on this mystery?
