Default Crow's nest

...literally.

This pair built this next almost overnight in my backyard on top of a tall cypress tree about 30 feet above the ground. From a distance, it looked like a haphazardly put together bunch of leaves, but up-close I realized it is a fairly intricately woven in set of branches.

John - in the 20+ years I've lived in this house, this is the first year I've seen 2 crow nests being built nearly. This one, and another one on top of a palm tree about 100 yards away. I really don't like crows; they steal food, raid other nests, foul up my birdbath by dropping their catch into it, etc, but what can you do?? If you notice, one of them brings the nest material and the other (tail showing) is arranging them inside.
