Last week little birds chirped from this nest that was tucked in a big loop of extension cord in our tool shed. When we came in to find the nest abandoned we took it down and examined it. Made of moss and twigs mainly, the interior was lined with Atticus fur (our dog who passed away in December.) 

It was a bittersweet find. 

I am left with the lingering question: were they were taken by the chicken-killing raccoon who has been sneaking into our chicken coop, or did this dog fur lined shelter serve it's purpose and see them to flight.
