the cycle of life continues

My husband and his brother were cleaning up in the back yard when they scared a bird out of a brush pile and discovered this:

Later, I went to photograph the nest, and was able to see what the momma bird was, a brown thrasher, Toxostoma rufum. She flew off of the nest and into the shrubs and brush a few feet away, fussing at me the whole time. This following is not my photograph, but clicking on the photo will take you to a page with more information on brown thrashers.

The Friday Ark is up at Modulator, and while it won't save you any money on your car insurance, it's sure to add some crittery goodness to your day.
