Messy nest builders
This may be evidence that some birds are wasteful builders of nests.
When Craig and I found the big pile of sticks on the ground, we thought it was just another wood rat's nest.
Then we changed our minds.
It was not against the wall of the cliff, and directly above it was a raven or raptor's nest.
This was a pile of construction waste, probably accumulated over several years.
Whoever it was, they were not very efficient.
We will check up in a couple months to see who the current builder is.
