A Nap Sack Is Home

by Jean Mollett

A nap sack is home,
awhile back a birds nest was discovered.
My hubby while working in the shed, he
kept seeing a bird fly out. He finally
found her nest, in all places. There's
a green army nap sack, hanging on a hanger
from the ceiling. In the middle of the shed.
One flap is inward, the other is folded up
against the straps.

A nap sack is home,
the little bird is a Brown Creeper. She's
smaller than a Sparrow. Even with the
lights on, it's kinda dark inside the nap
sack. You can see an outline where the nest
is, but along the outside ya can see some
of the nest. Little Mama has three babies,
the fourth egg didn't hatch out. It was a
sad time for her, at least she has three
little ones. The egg is gone, so mama must
have taken it away.

A nap sack is home,
my hubby said both little mama and papa
look kinda alike. Ya can't tell which is
which. I've only seen one on the nest.
She flys in and out these square little
openings so she can get food and water.
Little Mama's really busy now, feeding
her little ones. She used to fly off the
nest, sit and chirp loud.

A nap sack is home,
Whenever my hubby's working in there,
she sits still now and watches everything.
Her loud chirping, saying get out, I have
babies to feed. I haven't seen or heard
that yet, I don't go in there too much. I
don't want to disturb her. Little Mama's
alot calmer now. The babies are growing,
maybe I'll get a little peek this weekend.



Author's Note: When I first saw her babies, they must have just hatched out. Cause they were just wee tiny little pink babies, less than an inch long. Very, very small.
