Arcade, NY, United States
I was walking my dog in our mixed woodlands when a small bird suddenly ran away, as if injured. I lost track of the bird. The next day, the same situation occurred. This time I looked around the area and found the Ovenbird’s ground nest, filled with three eggs. This was a most exciting find as I never dreamed I would ever find this specie’s nest. I went back later and took a photo of the female looking at me. Of course, I made sure I left the area a soon as possible. Now, I await the hatching day. And all the while, I will be very nervous because many predators roam our woods, including feral cats.
