We had terrible storms here. We were under a tornado warning and a flash flood warning. I had never seen rain like that before, it came down fast and hard and did not let up for the entire night. The wind was wicked! The floods started around 1:30 am and stopped around 6:00am. When I was able to return home in the morning, I saw this little nest sitting on the side of the road. Some poor bird worked so hard just to have it blown out of it's tree. I hope that all the birds that made this home were alright, or maybe they were finished with it for the season. I had to salvage this and I will keep it somewhere special. This is probably the most perfect and beautiful nest that I have ever found. (and I only pick up ones that are on the ground, I would never take one out of a tree)....... Happily my home was safe from the storm. It is sad that some homes in town were flooded and there was some damage. There was also some damage to crops and farms. No one was hurt and that is the most important.
